What is Green Pest Control?

Green pest control has become increasingly popular as people continue to shy away from processed materials and attempt to lead natural and pesticide-free lives.

1. When Bug Spray Isn’t Enough

People generally tend to have few qualms about squashing bugs or spraying insects. In the heat of the moment, a shoe, window cleaner, rubbing alcohol, a newspaper, or anything handy is fair game as a weapon. While a can of grocery store bug spray may get rid of one insect, it may not dispose of an entire problem. Exterminators generally can find a solution to the problem, but they may employ harsh chemicals to get the job done. Green pest control offers efficient solutions that offer minimal environmental damage.

2. When Bug Spray Is Too Much

People remain concerned about the ancillary hazards that spray may have on the environment’s innocent bystanders. Pets, plants and the air that you breathe have all been rumored to be negatively affected by the strong sprays used by many exterminating agents.

3. Green Solutions

Call your local exterminator and inquire about non-chemical solutions. Be sure that your home is kept clean to minimize the dirty, dark hiding places that pests and rodents prefer. Inquire about glue traps and products with low levels of toxicity. Many companies that employ green pest control employ products that have a boric-acid base. These products are very poisonous to pests but when compared to traditional pesticides, pose a minimal threat to humans. Click here to learn more about residential pest control in Mountain View.
