The Bug Stops Here Difference

What makes The Bugs Stops Here different from other exterminating businesses is the concept of integrated pest management (IPM). Not only do we educate our exterminators on the insects they will be eradicating, but we also educate you, the client. We want you to fully understand the pests that were residing in your home. IPM is one of the most important factors in solving pest control problems.
Not only do we include IPM in your pest control services, but our exterminator professionals fully inspect and evaluate your house or business to develop a specific pest control plan designed to meet your needs. At The Bug Stops Here, we look for any open entrances for pests to enter your home or business. During the inspection process, we decide if we need to apply a protective band around the outside of your home or specifically target pests already living in your home. Our exterminators in Bohemia always ensure that their treatment plan is specific to your needs.
Both business owners and homeowners prefer The Bug Stops Here to solve their pest control issues on Long Island, Nassau County, Suffolk County, and the 5 boroughs.
Our most prized tool is our intelligence and understanding of the insects we are treating. Educating not just our technicians but you, the customer, is the best solution in solving your pest control issues. Integrated Pest Management is the strongest possible approach in our industry.

What is IPM?

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a variety of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.
The IPM approach can be applied to both agricultural and non-agricultural settings, such as the home, garden, and workplace. IPM takes advantage of all appropriate pest management options including, but not limited to, the judicious use of pesticides. In contrast, organic food production applies many of the same concepts as IPM but limits the use of pesticides to those that are produced from natural sources, as opposed to synthetic chemicals.
