Petri’s has an inside pest control program for those accounts that require more frequent inside service. These accounts are usually commercial accounts or condominiums, although Petri’s will service residential accounts inside on a regular basis if the customer requests this.
Commercial and Industrial pest control service generally requires more frequent interior service and at Petri we tailor our approach to the specific needs of the various types of businesses we service. Petri’s commercial service includes a heavier emphasis on IPM (Integrated Pest Management) which is the practice of eliminating or reducing conditions in the environment that are conducive to pest activity in and around a structure.
IPM may consist of advising on: proper sanitation and storage practices, caulking and sealing cracks and voids, correcting excess moisture problems, and trimming away vegetation from the building to name a few examples. As part of IPM, the use of devices and traps for monitoring helps the technician identify the types of pests encountered at a commercial structure which then determines the appropriate treatment strategy.
Because of heavy pest pressures in South Florida, in addition to IPM the application of pesticides on both commercial and residential properties is still sometimes necessary to fully control pests. Petri utilizes only the latest and most effective EPA approved products and materials when treating cracks, crevices, and voids on commercial properties. A focus is placed on directly treating potential pest harborages. As with residential properties a thorough perimeter treatment is also essential to controlling where pests live, breed, and originate from at commercial structures.
