True to its name, environmental pest control is all about getting rid of pests with minimum impact on the environment. That means finding pest control solutions that go beyond simply spraying and praying with dangerous pesticides.
However, more than just being environmentally friendly, natural pest control can actually be more effective than traditional pest control solutions, offering longer lasting results with less impact on your day-to-day life.
Long-term Pest Control with Integrated Pest Management
Integrated pest management, or IPM, is an environmental pest control method that seeks to remedy pest infestations by getting rid of the root causes of the infestation. While a fumigation can temporarily get rid of pests, if it doesn’t address those root causes, you can be sure the critters will return as soon as the smoke clears.
However, IPM is about creating a holistic pest management plan that will get rid of pests without having to resort to chemical pesticides, except in extreme cases. Examples of integrated pest management include exclusion and getting rid of conditions that could create pest habitats, such as removing standing water in your backyard.
By striking directly at the heart of your pest infestation, you’re ensuring years of pest-free living, instead of buying a few months of peace as the surviving pests breed and repopulate.
Eco-Friendly Pest Control is Safe Pest Control
In addition to keeping the environment safe, eco-friendly pest control keeps you and your family safe from potential side effects of chemical pesticides. While you can be sure a reputable pest control company will take every precaution to use pesticides safely, weekend warriors attempting to use store-bought pesticides can easily put themselves and their loved ones at risk!
In addition to being safer than spray treatments, natural pest control is also a great way to save energy by avoiding a multi-day fumigation. Instead of having to pack away all your things and spend days in an expensive hotel while exterminators spray away bed bugs, all-natural bed bug heat treatments can get rid of the pests in a matter of hours without disrupting the comfort of your home.
