What green pest control solutions are available?
Insects, bugs, and critters are not on the invited guest list for most homeowners. For many of us, our first instinct is to get rid of them as quickly as possible - by any means. Whether this means stockpiling your own weapons of bug destruction or calling in the troops from the local pest control service, it is important to remember that releasing chemicals into the environment has unintended consequences for other insects, animals, plants, pets, and people. Chemical sprays not only kill the intended target but other "good" insects as well - those that pose no risk as well as those that serve a purpose by eliminating other harmful insects.
The need to eliminate unwanted pests while protecting the environment and the health of your family has led to the development of new eco-friendly pesticides that are safer than chemical pesticides and extremely effective.
Integrated Pest Management
Other common sense preventative measures include storing garbage in sealed containers, disposing of refuse and recycling regularly, making sure gutters and downspouts are free of clogs, storing firewood away from the house, vacuuming frequently, and sealing food containers.
Pest control services now have a growing arsenal of low to non-toxic options for controlling the pest population. While pesticides are still used, they are seen as the option of last resort.
