There are many different pest control methods, and above all, there are processes and basic Pest Control Brisbane equipment for the small farmer to the one who has hectares of sowing, to protect each growing area and that also seeks to eliminate the methods of pesticides harmful to the environment and to human beings, applying the techniques through three steps: prevention, observation and application.
· THE INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT (IPM).
IPM consists of a very diverse set of physical, chemical, biological, mechanical, legal, genetic and cultural techniques used to control the pest. However, to apply this method it is necessary to take into consideration three stages, that are prevention, analysis and application, through which we seek to eliminate the environmental consequences that led to the control of the pest in general.
· PAYMENT POPULATION AT TOLERABLE LEVELS.
At this point you see the "action threshold" and this is because as you will have read in the title, it refers to control because it is almost impossible to be able to eliminate the Pest Control completely, whether is due to the price or for any other reasons. It is ideal to set a limit from which the pest population should not exceed and at such point actions will be taken.
· PREVENTION FROM CROPS.
The first thing that must be done to protect the crop from any pest attack is to study the basic pest control processes and equipment appropriate to the environment, so that it can also be applied to the crop, and the most environmentally resistant ones can be planted and kept as healthy as possible. Likewise, it is important to eliminate any plant infected with plague, in order to prevent its spread.
· CARRY OUT A STUDY OF A PORTION OF THE CROP.
This could be pointed out as the most important step of the IPM processes because without constant study of all the plants, insects and pests in general that inhabit the plantation, it is difficult to determine exactly what to do next, just applying a random technique will not work so you must use traps to trap the insects and carry out an adequate study of them.
· MECHANICAL CONTROL.
When the Bird Mite Control has reached the point where it has crossed the threshold or population limit, it is time to start with mechanical controllers, which consist of looking for each pest organism one by one and removing them from the crops, as well as applying barriers or using a vacuum cleaner and doing everything possible to prevent them from producing any more.
· BIOLOGICAL CONTROL.
At this point, both natural predators of the pest itself and its main enemies, such as fungi, nematodes, parasitic insects and microorganisms, are applied, which are usually inexpensive methods.
· CHEMICAL CONTROL
At this point, pesticides are used and they can be either synthetic or homemade. Even though it is usually thought that homemade pesticides have a lower environmental impact, nowadays, they have been created to help the basic pest control processes and equipment without affecting them to a great extent.
