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 look for areas that are vulnerable to pest intrusion, identify and prevent breeding sites, and inspect source locations such as trash areas, employee break rooms and drains. Our detailed reporting helps you streamline processes and make maintenance improvements.
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. Pesticides are used only as a last resort to ensure perfect control.
Having even a single fly in your store is unacceptable. That’s why Landmark’s exterior protection goes beyond the basics to include treatment of loading docks and garbage compactor areas to control flies where they rest.
When bees, wasps, hornets, or other pests threaten your employees or customers, Landmark’s emergency 1-hour response time keeps your store open and your sales on track. We respond 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Preparing Your Staff
Increasingly, products imported from China are arriving with bed bugs. We specialize in the emergency response that stores need when they discover infested merchandise. Every program includes training regarding best practices for containment and response when pests infiltrate. We provide training materials and conduct education sessions so that your staff will have lean, systematic processes in place when pest issues arise.
Bird Removal from stores in Illinois
Our biologists are experts at removing birds from stores quickly. Sparrows enter stores through loading docks and doors propped open during the course of business. Landmark’s complimentary staff training includes instruction to your staff about the importance of not chasing birds that enter your retail location, because this makes the birds frightful of humans and more difficult to remove. We will work around your schedule to remove birds during off-peak hours so that there is no disruption to your business.
Materials made of natural fibers are particularly susceptible to pest infestation from rodents, beetles and clothing moths. Often times, a problem can go undetected until the presence of mice, carpet beetles, cigarette beetles and drugstore beetles is indicated by product damage, fecal pellets and shed larval skins. Landmark’s 24-hour monitoring is designed to catch emerging issues before they become a problem.
