Rodents, insects, and wildlife that we often consider (and refer to as) “pests” all play an important role in our ecosystem, but it doesn’t always mean that we want them to inhabit our homes and yards. Whether you have an infestation of mice in your crawl space or a large wasp nest on the outside of your home, a pest problem will not go away on its own.
Many pest control methods involve using harsh chemicals that are effective at eliminating issues with pests but can also cause harm to humans, their pets, wildlife and kill helpful “pests” like pollinators. One of the best and safest ways to solve your pest issue is by using green pest control. Check out some of the benefits of green pest control methods.
As more waterways become polluted and natural habitats disappear, it’s crucial that we all need to work harder to improve our environment, restore ecosystems, and stop using products that destroy the planet.
Practicing green pest control methods, which incorporate green oils, plant extracts, and effective age-old methods, can preserve natural habitat and play a significant role in improving the environment.
Even though there are plenty of eco-friendly and natural DIY methods for pest removal, it’s best to hire an expert for green pest control. Many DIY methods are ineffective or contain ingredients that are not safe for pollinators or other animals.
Safer for Children and Pets
Having a rodent infestation in your home can be hazardous to your health, and if you have a child who is allergic to insect stings, a bee or wasp problem can turn deadly. While it’s important to get rid of pests quickly and effectively, control methods containing toxic chemicals are dangerous to children and pets.
Green pest control is safer for everyone, including children and pets, so whether you have a pest problem in your yard or inside your home, you can feel confident that an green method is safer.
Less Irritating for People with Allergies and Other Health Issues
The chemicals in non-green pest control treatments are unhealthy to be around and even more so for people with compromised immune systems, respiratory issues like allergies or asthma, or other health issues.
While some green treatments may still irritate individuals with health issues, most methods are completely safe. Before you hire a professional to apply green pest control methods talk to them about the products and ingredients they use to ensure that it won’t interfere with health or respiratory issues.
No Damage to Home or Yard
Toxic solutions can cause damage, such as staining, to the interior of a home or cause chemical “burns” in yards. Not only are green pest solutions safe to use around humans and pets, but they don’t damage the interior or exterior of your home.
Pest Control Done with Care
Pest control companies that invest and believe in green pest control are more likely to provide services with care and respect. While eliminating pests is the main goal of any pest control business, a company that offers green solutions also cares about the health of your family and the environment.
