Pros & Cons of “Green” Pest Control from a Customer Perspective

(click image to view larger)


  • Customers believe it is more kid, pet and environmentally friendly (this is not always the situation)
  • Increasing culturally popular
  • Expanded application areas such as boat docks, over water, marshes, etc.
  • Some can be applied to/around crops and gardens
  • A pleasant odor is left behind after an application (30% of customers like the smell)


  • Less effective than their synthetic counterparts (they break down more quickly or are only effective at time of application)
  • Often more expensive than the synthetic counterparts
  • Sometimes they have increased phytotoxicity (poisonous to plants)
  • Products tend to be “broad spectrum” (meaning they are made to control all types of insects instead of synthetics that are made to be more target pest specific)
  • An offensive odor is left behind after an application (70% of customers do not like the smell)
