Green pest management is a pest control strategy that sets pest action thresholds, monitors pest levels, takes steps to prevent pest problems and uses control methods that are organic (plant based) materials or materials of natural origin. Green pest management is an extension of integrated pest management and is similar in all regards except for the control methods. While both integrated pest management and green pest management choose the least risky pest control material, green pest management uses organic (plant based) materials or materials of natural origin.
An Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach also requires careful selection of pest control products when their use is necessary. Whereas traditional exterminators often apply cheap, highly-toxic pesticides in abundance, we opt to select the best reduced toxicity products available on the market for effective pest elimination. While our carefully selected product line includes some organic and natural-based pest control products, we also utilize a variety of cutting edge, target-specific products that are scientifically engineered to be more effective, biodegradable and, in some cases, even less toxic than their natural counterparts. In addition, our application methods target pest areas such as feeding and nesting areas, as well as entry points. This crack-and-crevice approach eliminates the need for broadcast application, in turn reducing the amount of product used and your exposure to it.
There are even more ways to reduce your exposure to pest control products. In addition to correcting conducive conditions, mechanical or pesticide-free items such as traps and general pest-proofing materials (screens, caulking, door sweeps) can also be very effective when used on conjunction with other preventative pest control measures.
Screens are an excellent IPM strategy and preventative meaure
Duct Seal-Caulking Alternative is part of our monthly services
Weather Stripping unnecessary joints prevents pest entry
Glue Boards are great non chemical pest eliminators!
