Import of Bait for Pest Control Treatment is Approved by the Environmental Protection Authority

Previously, the incidences of using hazardous chemical based baits for pest control purposes, caused a lot of harm, not only to the humans and the pets at home, but also to the harmless animals and garden beings within the property. The present day pest control agencies and bait manufacturers have become increasingly conscious of the harm these products bring to the environment and this has boosted the need to use environment friendly chemicals and baits for pest control requirements. 

The pest control product manufacturers feel relieved that the application for importing and manufacturing two such pest control substances containing sodium nitrite is approved by the Environmental Protection Authority. This new development has taken place in Sydney and these substances will be used as baits against possums and feral pigs. This approval has indeed revolutionized the field of pest control and pest eradication procedures. 

termite bait stationWith this approval, companies can now make both, encapsulated sodium nitrite and a bait containing this product also known as the ESN. ESN or the encapsulated sodium nitrite is known to be comparatively human friendly and has lesser amount of toxicity than other substances that have been previously approved for usage in pest control purposes. Since, this element breaks down quickly in the body, the chances of other animals experiencing any kind of food poisoning from eating the dead possums is minimized. Moreover, this bait comes with an antidote meant for the humans and the other animals that are not target to the exterminations.

This decision was made by an expert committee dealing in Hazardous Substances and New Organisms. They took this decision once they had studied the risks and dangers that the presently used materials posed to the humans in terms of health. The considerations also included the effect of the hazardous materials on the environment and the animals, thus countless regulations were designed to minimize the negativities in these pest control baits. 

The rules include the user of the baits on the pests to receive prior permission from respective authorities. They should also mention the conditions and the places where the baits are to be used. The authorities must also be informed about the ground stations used for baits and how others will be informed of the ongoing operation. Additionally, if anyone is adversely affected by the chemicals, a notification of the same should be made. 

The application for the permission should be made firstly to the EPA and secondly, in special cases, the Department of Conservation also needs to be informed, depending on the site where the operation is to be carried out.

Whom to approach for Integrated Pest Management Services

Termite- Control- servicesThe term ‘Pest control’ or ‘pest management’ does not sound that attractive as the other parts of management do. It is an incorrect idea that pest control involves only killing of cockroaches, rats and other bugs. Killing of insects is an integral part though, but the whole of pest control does not stand on the killing only.

Pest managers are not only killers; they are specialists of ecology and biology. There is a huge demand of pest managers in the industry but most of the youngsters are reluctant to be one. Pest control is not really a modern concept. We get the name of Benjamin Walsh, the British entomologist who worked as a pest manager in the year 1866.

The work of a pest manager is not limited in the domestic or urban section. The demand of pest controllers can be seen in the sections like agriculture, horticulture, forestry etc. as a whole, it will be quiet relevant to announce that a specialist pest manager is highly dependable to look after a certain part of food technology.

A pest manager is needed to be educated in parts like entomology, plant pathology, nematology (study of worms), chemistry and pesticide. People appoint pest managers to keep their fertile land insect free. But the job never gets done at that point only. There are many things to look after before implementing any effective procedure. The pest managers require deep and proper knowledge of farming and cropping and grasp of economics to implement cost effective measurements in a project. Pest management has a deeper implication in terms of conservation, effective agricultural procedures and a number of factors related to the ecology.

A pest manager’s instrument is not only poison, he should be armed with the knowledge of chemical ecology, biological control, holistic farming, , crop rotation, conservation of headlands, sociology, economics, monitoring and sustainability. Even if the term does not sound good, the demand of a pest manager is unavoidable. In this regard the concept of integrated pest management deserves special mention. This kind of pest management plans are designed especially to render favorable economic, sociological and ecological results, specifically in terms of agriculture and horticulture.
