This is where Integrated Pest Management (IMP) programs for aged care centres and retirement villages is so valuable.
We understand Aged Care!

Our approach is that pest control doesn’t have to be toxic. Removing the pests’ access to food, water and shelter is the first step in eradication and then it is combined with other low-hazard, non-chemical and non-invasive treatment solutions.
CIVIL Pest Management prides itself on its thorough and specific IPM plan for aged care centres and retirement villages in Sydney. We will assess your site, carry out necessary steps for eradication and provide you with an actionable plan to keep your centre pest free all with the health and safety of our senior citizens placed first and foremost.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program is founded on ecologically based strategies that use long-term prevention methods and that deal with the root causes, not just the symptoms of pest problems.
Why is IPM Important?
Unfortunately, spraying for pests only works for a certain period of time. It is a not an all-in-one solution.
As pests will keep coming back, as the pesticide loses potency and over time pests build immunity to chemicals. Using IPM methods ensures that the root cause of infestations is dealt with and further reduces the risk of developing resistance to chemicals.
Why is IPM Important for Aged Care Centres & Retirement Villages
IPM is the gold standard for safe pest control and is described on the NSW Environmental Protection Authority’s website as “… an environmentally sensitive way of managing pests. It uses a combination of practices and control methods to prevent problems from occurring rather than dealing with them after they have happened. IPM practices include forward planning, regular monitoring and timely decision-making.
