The “green” initiative seems to be everywhere even some pest control companies have gone green by offering green pest control, but what exactly is it? Is it really effective and will it keep bugs out of your house?

What is green pest control?

Green pest control services are designed to protect the vitality of natural resources and use the least harmful chemicals possible and cause the least impact on the environment. A good green pest control service will choose products that have successfully performed well in rigorous testing and research trials. You can also look for green pest control services that are certified by independent green agencies and organizations for further assurance you are dealing with a green expert.

Prevention is the foundation of green pest control

Preventing an infestation before it even occurs is by far the most effective – and greenest – pest control option. A good green pest control service will conduct a thorough assessment and analysis of your property to develop a specific, tailored pest control and prevention regime specific to your needs.

Green pest control starts with a solid assessment

The evaluation should include inspection outside the home and a thorough analysis of your yard and home’s perimeter, paying close attention to cracks and points of entry for potential pests. The company should also look at your lawn and landscape to determine outdoor pest control needs, and seek out common infestation sights like wood piles, garages, sheds, and eaves. The evaluation should not stop there, however. Once inside your home, entry points and areas vulnerable to pest attack should be thoroughly examined. Appliances, under sinks, basements, attics, kitchens, and laundry rooms are common infestation sites and require careful assessment.

Green Plan of Action

The idea behind green pest control is to eliminate pest problems and cause the least harm to the planet and our precious resources. Green pest control requires a plan that utilizes prevention and ongoing maintenance. If chemicals are required to exterminate pests, the chemicals should cause the least harm. Green certifications of chemicals can help you feel comfort in knowing the safest chemicals are being used. An ongoing plan should include regular maintenance and checkups to ensure your home remains up to quality pest control standards.

Effective Green Pest Control

The key to a successful green pest control service is not only that the service is safe and earth friendly, but your green pest control service should be effective at eliminating a pest infestation. Pest problems are at minimum irritating and at worst, can cause real harm to you and your loved ones. That is why it is vital that your green pest control company is reputable and has a solid reputation for quickly eliminating and preventing pest problems with resource-friendly products that help you protect and nurture your healthy, pest-free home.
