Environmentally Friendly Pest Control
Good Stewards Of The Environment
At Home Pest Control, our pest specialists are stewards of the environment. That's why we only use environmentally responsible pest control solutions and EPA registered products.
New methods are constantly being developed to safely and successfully eliminate target pests. Here at Home Pest Control, we always aim for the lowest impact possible on non-target pests and the environment. We stay up to date on the latest in environmentally friendly pest control, ensuring that we’re implementing industry best practices. Behind our effective solutions lies our commitment to the health of your home and our wish to protect the environment.
We work with several partners to ensure the safety of your home and business. You can rest assured that our long-standing collaborations ensure protection of non-target pests, gardens, and the environment.
Pollinator Health is important to us. We use application methods that promote the health of bees and other pollinators because we have an environmental commitment. Bayer Bee Care and Pollinator Health are just a couple of the trusted resources that we look to for insight and education.
Bees and other pollinators are at risk, and we need to keep them safe for the future of our food supply. There are many factors contributing to the current decline in bee populations, and one of them is the overuse of pesticides. Applying more of a pesticide doesn’t increase its effectiveness, though many homeowners (and some pest exterminators) continue to over-apply. Home Pest Control follows strict application protocols and concentration guidelines that keep your local bee populations safe from harm.
Integrated Pest Management for the Environment
When you choose Home Pest Control, one of our pest specialists will visit your home and help you develop a long term pest control plan. They’ll start by finding the problem pests that are currently residing in you’re home and eliminating them. From there, one of our experts will create an Integrated Pest Management plan that prevents pests from becoming a problem in the future.
Some pest control companies only address existing pest infestations, ignoring the importance of taking preventative measures. At Home Pest Control, we believe that prevention is the safest and most environmentally responsible approach to take when it comes to pest control. That’s why we work with you to develop comprehensive schedule for future pest prevention. One of our home pest specialists will provide you with options for long-term, low impact pest treatment.
Green-Based Solutions To Termite Problems
Dealing with termites can be a challenge. Doing so in an environmentally responsible manner is even harder. But at Home Pest Control, we use Sentricon®, a green, environmentally friendly system that’s designed to get your termite situation under control fast.
The Sentricon® System is the only termite control product that’s ever been awarded the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. This is a government-issued environmental award recognizing technical innovation that incorporates environmentally responsible chemistry into its design, manufacture, and use.
Why is Sentricon® a greener solution? The active material in Sentricon® baiting stations is contained, meaning that it can’t leach into your yard and affect plant life or underground water sources. Because the stations are contained, they’re also removable if necessary.
Other termite control options often involve the application of liquid chemicals. These chemicals are absorbed into the ground, and can potentially end up contaminating groundwater sources. Aside from the obvious danger that this poses, these chemicals can have a negative impact on your yard and garden, too. Spray pesticides also can't be removed without extensive drilling, trenching, or digging, all of which can disturb the area around your home.
The Sentricon® System is different. It has a low impact on human health, low toxicity to the organisms that it’s not meant to target (fish, birds, plants, and so on), and very low potential for contaminating groundwater. Sentricon® bait stations are placed into your yard in an unobtrusive manner with only the green tops of the bait stations visible. One of our Home Pest Control Sentricon® specialists will visit your home to check on and refill your termite control stations as needed. Otherwise, the stations remain closed and locked, reducing the risk of potential harm to children and pests.
