Insect and Pest Maintenance Services in Tucson, AZ

Did you know? Integrated pest management is our first line of defense.


There are many insects and pests that can cause problems and threaten the health of our landscape, plants, and trees. By identifying specific symptoms of damage to our plant materials, we may be able to diagnose the problem and select the appropriate treatment. One way is through integrated pest management. Integrated pest management (IPM) is the practice of using safe, environmental methods to effectively control insects, weeds, and diseases in the landscape. Using a combination of practical and common-sense treatment practices allows gardeners to use the least amount of environmentally hazardous materials. IPM uses cultural, biological, physical, and pest management strategies to reduce or eliminate the use of pesticides and chemicals on foods, vegetables, and plants.
Benefits include promoting plant health and pest management alternatives, reducing environmental risks, protecting non-target species through the reduction of chemicals, and using pest management strategies to reduce the need for pesticides. By using these practices, everyone benefits from a healthier environment.

Pest Control Tip: Know When to Bring in the Second Line of Defense

When the situation calls for a stronger response. Sometimes, natural methods alone will not effectively control insects or diseases. After you have exhausted all natural remedies, you may have to use some chemicals to combat the pest or disease. If you need to use a chemical, always read the label carefully before buying and again before using it. The availability and use of particular pesticides may change from year to year. The label is the final authority on how you may legally use any product. Pesticides are available in many stores, including hardware stores, gardening centers, and variety retail stores.
