|DEPP is dedicated to supporting "Sustainable Development" by using Integrated
Pest Management. According to the World Commission on Environment and
Development, sustainable development is:
|"Development and Services that meet the needs of the present
without compromising the ability of future generations
to meet their own needs."
|DEPP was formed to provide a "Green" pest control service incorporating our
proprietary product; DiaSource® Diatomaceous Earth Crawling Insect Killer.
|With "Sustainable Development" as a constant goal, we have developed specific
installation procedures and processes that give us the ability to support and
educate out customers on our product and the benefits of living and working with
out commonly used harmful toxic chemical pesticides.
|The owners of DEPP have been involved with DiaSource® Diatomaceous Earth
Crawling Insect Killer since its development. This product contains no stomach
poisons or nerve toxins. Unlike chemicals pesticides, there is no residue build up
from multiple applications. When the proven procedures and processes for application
are followed, there is not need for additional major reapplication's. Spot treatments
might be needed to treat "back pack" insects that are brought/carried in via cardboard
boxes, pets, humans coming in from outside, etc...
|Integrated Pest Management (IPM): IPM is an effective and environmentally sensitive
approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices
by initially using the least hazardous pesticides available.
****Please note that in several chapters Diatomaceous Earth is mentioned as the
"Green" initial use pesticide and should be placed in the wall voids of schools during
construction as a crawling insect barrier.
