Property Pest Management Plan

Planning is essential for effective pest management, plans help to

  • encourage the understanding of integrated pest management techniques
  • set objectives and develop awareness of pests and their management
  • ensure safe and best practice control techniques will be applied at all times
  • monitoring and evaluation of works regularly undertaken to prevent new pests invading, or those existing spreading further throughout your property to adjoining properties.

Pest management planning occurs at all levels - national, state, regional, local and property. Although property owners are not required to develop a property pest management plan, planning is the key to managing your pests.
