Museum & Antiques
Ecopoise has been involved with a lot of conservation projects. It’s a high priority for us to preserve locations and artifacts as they remind us of our ancestry.
However, as these materials are fragile and special, an extra precaution in handling them is a more than necessary. Our team can source out an appropriate way to protect this work of arts and are trained to handle them with all the safety nets required.
Museum integrated pest management is the practice of monitoring and managing pest and environmental information with pest control methods to prevent pest damage to collections and cultural heritage.
Preserving cultural heritage is the ultimate goal for most museum collection personnel. Museum pests come in many different forms: insects, mites, rodents, bats, birds, and fungi and the two most common types are insects and fungi.
It is widely recommended that every museum has some form of pest control in place and monitoring system to protect their collection and that museums review their storage and museum facilities to determine how to best control and prevent pest infestations while utilizing an Integrated Pest Management plan.
The implementation of integrated pest management should be done in steps. To begin, the museum and our Pest Control Operators should review a floor plan of the building and determine all “doors, windows, water and heat sources, and drains”, as well as all furniture and other objects within the museum.
Routine monitoring by our Pest Control Operators will provide information about the points of entry, amount of insects, where they reside in the building, and what they are feeding on. With this information, a museum will be able to identify the damaged areas and what pests are infesting the museum.
Our highly equipped Pest Control Operators will ensure that you have the most effective treatments done and will provide you with a detailed report each time they do maintenance.
