Hello World! Welcome Friends! You’ve probably heard about green pest control in the past year or two. It’s a hot topic, especially among homeowners who want to be sure that their families and pets are safe when they are in the yard. Many people aren’t sure if a green program is effective. Here are several things to consider about this kind of product.
Green Pest Control Vs. Traditional Treatments
Pest management chemicals – the original type, not the green type – are not necessarily harmful to people and pets. However, it can be hard for homeowners to know what green means as opposed to conventional chemicals. When chemicals are applied, it doesn’t automatically make it a non-green application. Green chemicals are different because they are usually applied for just one type of pest, instead of many. For example, green chemicals may only affect mosquitoes, instead of mosquitoes and stinging insects.
Everyone’s definition of green varies, too. Green pest control may mean that no chemicals are used. Or, it may mean that natural predators, like beneficial insects, are used to keep certain other insects at bay. Sometimes, if pests can be trapped, that method is used instead.
Custom Blended Treatments Are Most Effective
So, how to best answer the question: Should you use green or typical treatments? Pest control professionals have found that a blended approach works well that combines both typical applications and pest deterrents. Traditional chemical applications have their place, since they are quite effective, but are applied carefully to control their use. A pest control professional understands the differences between a program that’s active and methods that are more preventative. Expert exterminators rely on different treatments and tools that will ensure pests aren’t bothering you or damaging your property, with little impact to your yard.
