Pest Control for Museums

Biological specimens and materials made of natural fibers are particularly susceptible to pest infestation from beetles and moths. Landmark’s Integrated Pest Management program ensures a clean, pest-free environment that keeps your collection safe from pest damage.

Unless adequate monitoring is in place, a problem can go undetected until it’s too late. Landmark’s 24-hour monitoring is designed to catch emerging issues before they become a problem.

Strategies employed in museum settings may include freezing materials for 7 days that enter or leave collections, pheromone and glue traps to monitor for emerging infestations, and the use of repellents, insect growth regulators, and products with residual action.

Many modern museums house more than just collections. Your offices, break rooms, kitchens, cafeterias, labs, and vending areas may attract ants, cockroaches and rodents that require additional monitoring and control.

Landmark’s Integrated Pest Management program reduces reliance on pesticides by delivering research-based green technologies and targeted methods that remove what pests need to survive; access to food, water, warmth, and harborage.

We first employ pesticide-free methods such as insect traps, light traps, air curtains, structural exclusion, and habitat modification. Preferred green methods include natural products such as silica, dust formulations applied to inaccessible wall voids, and targeted bait gels applied to cracks and crevices. Detailed reporting helps you streamline processes and make maintenance improvements.

We ensure a clean, pest-free environment with 24-hour monitoring designed to detect emerging issues before they become a problem. If you need a biologist in the middle of the night, our discrete rapid response can have a technician to you in as little as one hour. We respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Detailed Reporting to Improve Operations

Each report contains a detailed analysis of sanitation conditions, structural deficiencies, and practices that can be undertaken to reduce pests. We identify conditions that support pests including cleaning practices, trash removal, condensation areas, and organic debris. Then, we partner with you to eliminate the conditions that support pests.

Seal Mice Out

The best way to prevent infestation is to keep pests from entering in the first place. That’s why Landmark is more than a pest control company, we’re a pest exclusion company. Our team identifies the points in your building that are allowing pests to enter and seals pests out to ensure they can’t get in. Our exclusion work is fully warrantied.

Mice can enter through holes as small as a ¼ inch, and they carry diseases that put your business at risk of failing inspections. Landmark performs comprehensive inspections to identify the signs that mice leave behind. We work with you to eliminate the sanitation issues caused by rodents. We locate every hole where pests enter and seal them out to ensure you’ll be inspection ready.

Bird Control

A bird in your facility can spread contaminants and shut down your operation, costing you thousands. Landmark responds 24/7/365 to control pest birds quickly and get your operations back on track.

Landmark’s structural engineers and state-certified biologists install bird deterrents that proactively exclude birds, including pigeons, starlings, and sparrows. We safely remove hazardous droppings and nesting materials and install attractive and low profile products that maintain the aesthetic appeal of your building. Don’t fail a health inspection due to pest birds. Our experts will remove your birds and restore your peace of mind.
