QUICK COURSE: What is Green Pest Control?

What Sets Us Apart?

When you ask us to provide you with a Green pest service, we will first begin with a non-chemical strategy. This means that as opposed to initially using chemicals inside and outside your home or business, we will first investigate the source of the problem and attempt to eliminate it before applying pesticides.

In addition, we can make recommendations that will help eliminate your pest problem or potential for problems in the future by making recommendations such as repairing screens, replacing damaged windows, and caulking cracks and crevices.

Green Pest Control is to only use low impact pesticides when absolutely necessary and when doing so, will take a targeted approach to eliminate your pest problem. We specialize in using 25b exempt pesticides. These are natural, Generally Regarded as Safe (GRS). These are exempt from requiring an E.P.A. registration number. These include, not limited to Botanicals, Biologicals, Food Grade Desiccants, Green Certified Synthetics as well as Steam.
