Generally, pest infestation has the power to put the reputation of your products, services, and business at risk.

For example, in a popular Japanese restaurant in KL, 2 rats were seen running around the kitchen freely by a customer. The news quickly went viral, and people have shared their disappointment about the lack of hygiene.

So, it is important to have professional exterminators or pest control experts to exercise effective pest management.

What are the methods of IPM?

With that in mind, here are the 7 methods of Integrated Pest Management in Malaysia.

1. Pest Management Inspection

Firstly, you should expect regular inspections scheduled to achieve the full effectiveness of IPM.

Place Area
Office Kitchen and dining area, meeting rooms, car park
Food processing Incoming and outgoing goods, warehouse, waste storage
Hotel Food stores, restaurants, kitchens, guest rooms
Food retail Stockroom, delivery areas, waste storage area
Pharmaceutical plant Incoming and outgoing goods, warehouse, laboratory

Hence, one of the best things you could do is structural maintenance. Then, close all the discovered potential entry points during pest inspection and keep them clean and hygienic.
