How do we create effective pest management solutions and a healthy home environment? We use enviromentally 'safe' products for your family, but lethal on pests. Integrated Pest Management (IPM), is a combination of 'safe' treatment with sub-floor ventilation. It doesn't mean to say that all these measures must be combined at once. No. However strategies must be put in place that IPM is achieved. Why is sub-floor ventilation an intrinsic part of IPM. For the reason that pests thrive on moisture particularly termites, and this is not a guest that you would want at your house. The Termite Inspection Report AS 3660 advises that moisture is the sub-floor area must be minimised. The most effective way of doing this is by using fan-forced ventilation systems in association with passive vents..
