Integrated Pest Management: The Green & Effective Solution
Integrated Pest Management, or IPM for short, is the most effective and eco-friendly way to resolve pest problems.
First, we conduct a careful inspection of your property to understand the pest issues you are facing, and more importantly, why they are occurring. Then we modify the environment to remove factors that attract pests to your property, such as eliminating food sources, places to hide, and entry points.
After we’ve created this barrier, depending on the pest, we may employ baits, traps and/or chemical pesticides. You can be assured that we always use the lowest risk products that impact only the target pest. Examples of the products we might use include traps, mineral-based dusts, boric acid, gel bait, granular bait and biological controls like BTI. If a spray treatment is needed, we use plant-based products with active ingredients such as clove, garlic, cedar or citronella.
Ongoing monitoring is the final step, so that we can manage pest problems before they get out of hand. We always tailor our solutions to the specific property and time of year.

History of Highland Eco Pest Control
In 2010, Jesse bought a couch on Craigslist that came with an unwelcome surprise: bed bugs! After researching treatment options—most of which required numerous chemical applications with no guarantee of success—Jesse saw an opportunity. He bought some powerful heaters and a bed bug sniffing dog. The rest is history! We’ve helped thousands of families rid their homes of bed bugs without harmful chemicals.
Since then, we’ve branched out. Rodents, mosquitos, cockroaches—these pests are not just annoying; they can also spread disease. We are passionate about tackling these and other pest problems for our customers. Our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach means that we address the root cause of pest problems, never apply unnecessary chemicals, and always opt for the least toxic solutions to get the job done.
As a family-owned, local business, we would be honored to be your choice for any pest problem you are facing. You can count on us to protect you like family.
And don’t worry, we got rid of that couch!
