An integrated pest management technique practices in cabbage farms has seen farmers’ profits rise between 20% to 30%
An integrated pest management technique incorporated into farming practices in cabbage farms in Fiji’s Sigatoka Valley has seen farmers’ profits rise between 20 and 30 per cent.
The integrated pest management programme (IPM) uses existent, comprehensive information about the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. In combination with available pest control methods, this information is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means.
The technique is based on the premise that not all insects are bad and that pesticides are not the only means to control harmful insects. The technique therefore is both an economical and sustainable method of pest control.

The ants are marching one by one — right into East Campus Village. The dormitories on campus have been ruthlessly plagued by ants for months now without relief, according to residents. The East Campus dormitories include Rooker, McWhorter, Vandiver and the 1512 building.
Paula Bugg, junior biological science major from Decatur, is a resident in McWhorter Hall, and she and her roommates have been victimized by these pests since November. Arriving home from Thanksgiving Break, Bugg and her roommates noticed several ants in their bathroom.

Presentation matters. There is no doubt that how something or someone looks impacts customers and their experience with your company. Study after study shows that consumers purchase with their eyes. When dealing with homeowners, business owners and commercial accounts, the appearance of your pest control technician matters.
1. Many companies mandate uniforms, even if it is just a shirt. Beyond requiring the uniform, what are your company policies? Must the uniforms or shirts be kept clean, pressed and neat? Does facial hair need to be trimmed and neat? Are caps or hats part of the uniform? Consider how a technician in a soiled or torn shirt, bearing your company name or logo, looks when he enters a restaurant, an office or a home to treat. People are purchasing a total package and appearance is a critical piece of the package.

Q: My daughter is sensitive to a lot of things, hence we don't use any chemicals, including pesticides, around the house. The Greenbug you mentioned a while back works very well. How can I be sure that when my daughter starts school that they don't use any chemicals, particularly pesticides, there? I don't want her to get sick.
A: A 1997 Environmental Protection Agency memorandum from William Burnham, Health Effects Division, noted that the U.S. EPA had identified at least 96 registered pesticide active ingredients that are potential human carcinogens. The No. 1 killer disease of children is cancer. In October, 47 Ohio schoolchildren were sickened when an exterminator sprayed some herbicides outside of a classroom without asking the teachers to close the windows. I would recommend asking the school what they do for pest management. Most schools use pest control companies, which is fine, but they need to use companies that offer nontoxic pest management. Synthetic pesticides should never be used in school buildings or on school property. There are safe and effective alternatives.

WITH rats breeding up in abandoned flood-affected properties, pest controllers are warning the vermin could become a major problem yet again. Reports of high rates of infestations follow the rat population explosion last winter in the flood-hit Goodna area.
Ripley-based Common Courtesy Pest Control owner Brian Kneebone said he was attending more rat control jobs this summer than in any of his previous 30 years in the industry. "Jobs are up, and some places use much more bait than usual," Mr Kneebone said.

Scientists hope Aucklanders can help them update records about the spread of an unwanted pest that causes severe allergic reactions and poses a danger to the ecosystem. Researcher Darren Ward of Landcare Research wants to track down two species of paper wasps, and has already received calls of several hundred being sighted.
The first species, the Australian paper wasp, has been present in the North Island since the 1880s. The Asian paper wasp was first recorded in the country in 1979. While the wasps are most common in Auckland and Northland, Landcare Research has also recorded the first sighting of the wasp in Central Otago.
"The last records were updated in the 1990s, so we're interested to see if they have spread," said Ward. "We're hoping the public and people interested in bugs will be able to spot them and let us know where they saw them.
KANPUR: The Kanpur zoo administration has found a piped piper to get rid of rodents. The zoo has entered into agreement with Pest Control India.
The director of Kanpur zoo told Times Of India said that the rodents are disease carriers and often cause loss to feed given to the birds. Rodents have made veterinary hospital as home.
"We trap the rodents and leave outside the zoo premises or else we kill these creature because of huge loss to the animal feed, especially the feed given to the birds. So we decided to enter into an agreement with Pest Control India, which would be doing the job of catching the rodents from the aviary and hospital," the director said.
The staff of Pest Control India would use pellets and cakes to control the rodents. "The exercise would be conducted every two months. This contract has been inked for a period of one year and hopefully, the zoo would become rodent free completely by then," he said while speaking about the contract.
The Pest Control India has adopted the aviary and hospital area of the zoo. They would be offering complimentary services. On Saturday, the zoo director and Pest Control India official signed a contract which would remain into effect for next one year.
