Flying Insect Removal Midtown Manhattan, NY

Our Approach

Integrated Pest Management (or IPM) is the name of the approach that Acme Exterminating will employ in your property. IPM integrates a wide range of pest control techniques, from insecticides to use of mechanical, biological, and environmental methods to attain a pest free environment. IPM relies greatly on careful inspection and observation to identify sources of infestations, elimination of rodent and insect harborages through good sanitary practices, and identifying site specific application of control measures. We will work aggressively to help you eliminate conditions which may be conducive to pests. The alternatives to toxic chemicals require a greater commitment to long term preventive management strategies before emergencies arise.
