Integrated pest management (IPM)

The procedure of EWS Pest control is based on the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The basis of IPM is formed by taking preventive measures. This limits the entry and development of pests in and around buildings to a minimum. This can include making constructional adaptations such as closing holes, cracks and poorly closing doors that offer pests the opportunity of entering buildings. Our service technicians are trained in signalling possible risk areas in and around buildings and processes. During regular checks we offer advice concerning the prevention of pests such as mice and insects.

In addition, EWS Pest control has a specialised team that can take the required (constructional) prevention measures. They examine constructional gaps in view of pest control, which enables even better anticipation of the situation on the spot. This method minimises the use of biocides. This limits the use of chemical pesticides as a last resort.

Pests and Boicides Act (PBA)
By applying IPM the PBA is immediately met. This act lays down a ban on the unlimited use of biocides. This ban applies for the contractor as well as the client. If the necessary preventive measures have been taken, biocides can be used for a limited time. Depending on the contract agreements and following up the client’s advice, separate agreements can be made.

Flora and fauna legislation
All our activities meet the basic assumptions of the Flora and Fauna Act. According to this act, birds and protected animals and plants may not be harmed. The Flora and Fauna Act can be summarised as follows:

  • All animals are protected, with the exception of the brown and black rat, the house mouse and insects;
  • Unnecessary animal suffering should be prevented.
