What is “Green” Pest Control?

(click image to view larger)

There is no one standard definition in the pest control world so here are the descriptors that describe the type of products that are used in a “green” pest control program.

  • Eco-Friendly – environmentally friendly or non-pollutive to the environment
  • All Natural – naturally derived
  • Less Toxic – toxic to the pests treated but less toxic other non-target living creatures
  • Botanical –derived from plants

If a pest controller uses some combination of these terms, then the industry will accept that company as “green” pest provider.

At Backyard Comfort & Pest Control we do offer “green” pest control. We offer it as a service to minimize the risk of pesticide exposure using naturally derived pest control products and/or integrated pest management.
Here are some examples:

  • General Pest Control - using botanical liquids rather than use a product containing a synthetic ingredient
  • Mosquito Control – use of traps, bait stations or botanically derived sprays in a backpack sprayer instead of using an insecticide spray with a synthetic ingredient
  • Termite Control – use of borates or bait stations instead of liquid soil treatments
  • Rodent Control – exclusion and trapping used as an alternative to using rodenticides
