The first approach to solving any pest problem indoors is the use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
IPM practices the use of non-chemical solutions to any given pest
situation. It is now a Texas Law (governed by the Structural Pest
Control Board - SPCS) that our schools use IPM practices to try and solve insect problems within school property. There is even a list of approved chemicals for such use. They are referred to as "Green List" products.
It probably won't be long before the state of Texas mandates
IPM practices be mandatory for all services, including residential
AAA Quality Termite & Pest Control is looking into the future and already uses IPM practices in all areas of pest control management.
A good example of IPM in action is getting a cat to solve a rodent problem.
Another example would be to reduce the moisture content around the home/business to control springtail fleas, or use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of house spiders.
