What Is Integrated Pest Management?

Our integrated pest management services prevent, monitor, and control all kinds of infestations and pest problems. We use an array of treatments and regular maintenance to keep soil healthy and fungi-free. The process ranges from dethatching to the application of high-quality and safe pesticides.

Integrated Pest Management FAQ

Want to know more? Take a look at these answers to some of the most common pest control services questions we get.

  • What is the best time to do pest management?

    That really depends on the kind of treatment we’re performing. For some pests, it’s best to perform pest management treatments during the spring. Other procedures may require waiting until the fall.

    We apply a range of weed killers, pesticides, pesticide-free alternatives, and other products to your lawn and outdoor space to beat pests. Our team will walk you through every option available, explaining the pros and cons, and will make sure you make an informed decision.

We are very happy with how Earth Development has been handling our account. We REALLY like the Sitefotos reports that are being sent to us. It gives us a great idea on how the site is looking and allows for us to look through the photos and decide if we want to go ahead with any of the recommended work. For example trees or bushes that block the line of sight for drivers or pedestrians, bushes/branches hanging into sidewalks, etc. Also, big props for how quickly you respond to issues! With 45 sites not everything is going to be perfect all of the time, but the fact that Earth Development addresses issues immediately when they come up is a huge help. We want to give a huge shout out and Thank You to Earth Development. We appreciate all the improvements you've made, and how good your communications and service has been. Keep up the good work!
