Does Green Pest Control Really Work?

Green recycling heart. Interstate Pest Management serving Portland OR & Vancouver WA talks about if green pest control really works.

First off, green pest control has nothing to do with Bruce Banner or The Hulk.

Currently there are no regulations for the term “Green Pest Control”. Indeed, any pest control company could advertise for “Green Pest Control.” Consumers should beware that the term green pest control is still too vague to carry much weight. The terms environmentally friendly and organic are regulated terms within the pest control industry.

Green does work…

Green pest control works if implemented by a qualified professional company who are actually using a green control standard as Interstate Pest Control does.

These include:

Natural enemies of insect pests, also known as biological control agents, include predators, parasitoids, and pathogens.

Materials of natural origin may be either organic, such as plant oils, or inorganic, such as boric acid. Some plant oils used include Rosemary, Wintergreen, Eugenol (Clove Oil) and other oils. They act as insecticides at some concentrations and as nonselective herbicides at other, higher concentrations.

At Interstate Pest Control, we have been implementing green pest control since it started in the sixties. We follow the standards set by the (IPM) Integrated Pest Management program using the most natural and least toxic chemicals to keep those invasive pests under control.

By the use of these natural substances and treatment methods, the environment stays safer and so do you, your family, and your pets.

Like the Hulk, we at Interstate Pest Control are constantly changing—except for the better—trying to keep the environment free of dangerous pesticides. So, go ahead, be environmentally conscious and support green pest control. Think of the future for your family and the safety of your home. Go green!
