Green Solutions for Your Brevard County Pest Control

Many people’s first thoughts of pest control are of synthetic pesticides and chemicals that can potentially harm the environment, but perhaps even household pets and the residents themselves. However, as environmental impact becomes more of an issue, more Brevard County pest control services are turning to green pest control solutions. But what exactly does being green mean?

Green pest control is a combination of pest management systems, but relies on organic ingredients and solutions, as well as making sure the materials are low risk and impact. Organic is defined as of being from a natural (i.e., typically plant-based) origin rather than synthetic.

The first step of integrated outdoor pest control is to investigate not only the reasons why you have an infestation, but how they’re getting there as well. The big concern with any Brevard County pest control service is not only to take care of your current problem, but to help stop it from occurring again. After all, if the reason you’re having ants is because you don’t clean out your cans or bottles before recycling, getting rid of the ants but not fixing the problem only means you’ll have a return of your problem.

Then, once the service has determined the source and method of your pest problem, the problem is treated with the most environmentally-friendly products. But don’t be mistaken: just because these products are natural, that doesn’t mean they are home remedies you could create yourself.

In fact, typically, companies tend to use baits and gels they buy or manufacture themselves, keeping in mind items that may be toxic to bugs but use everyday natural ingredients that are safe for you and your pets.

Many pest control companies also will suggest environmentally friendly alternatives such as ladybugs to take care of aphids or mites or planting certain types of vegetation that will take care of other bugs. This is actually the heart of integrated pest management, incorporating the solution into the system, and it’s more about control than extermination, as having a small amount of pests is relatively healthy.

Of course, not every method – regardless of whether it’s environmentally friendly or not – will work every time. If a pure organic method doesn’t solve the problem, many Brevard County pest control services will then move to a low impact product which are still environmentally friendly.

There are many things you can do to make sure you’re doing everything you can to control pest infestations as well. Keep your house clean, especially in the kitchen, making sure food and trash are tightly sealed. Check (and fill, if possible) cracks and holes in the home. Make sure bushes and trees are trimmed at away from the house, and make sure extra wood is removed to keep out bugs.

By making sure your Brevard County pest control service is using green services, you’re not only helping the environment, but you’re keeping your house and yard safe for pets, children, and yourself. Going green can make a long term effect and help control the problem.
