7. Perform treatment program (generally non-chemical). We don’t simply rely on pesticides. There are other options and your professional will explain those to you. 

8. Monitor. We monitor so you can see exactly how treatments are working. We want you to know what we are doing and see that is working. 

9. Follow-up and assess to make sure we are getting the desired results. Thorn is not a one size fits all company. We can work with museums, curator and home owners to find solutions that are best for everyone. 

Do you have non-chemical options?

When dealing with artifacts and heirlooms we often cannot use pesticides to get control and must rely on non-chemical control methods. These methods may include:

  • Vacuuming
  • Manual removal
  • Heat
  • Cold
  • Pheromone traps
  • Insect Light Traps
