Finding a Trustworthy Pest Company That Cares About the Environment


Finding a Trustworthy Pest Company That Cares About the Environment

Over the past few decades, the effects of pesticides and insecticides on the environment have been a real concern. Customers want to find a trustworthy pest company that cares about the environment. Some companies are still using pesticide and insecticide products made with extremely toxic chemicals considered harmful to humans, pets, and the environment.

How do you know if your pest control company is being cautious about the products they use? There are some ways you can identify companies that follow an ethical code ensuring the products they use are environmentally safe.

Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program and Partners

The Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP) was organized through a partnership with the EPA (the United States Environmental Protection Agency) to connect with the pesticide-user community and promote the usage of environmentally sound products. Through PESP, many businesses receive the information and resources they need to use environmentally friendly products that won’t put their customers’ health at risk.

Assisting Customers in Finding Trustworthy Pest Control Companies

There are certifications and partnerships that help customers find trustworthy pest control companies, like QualityPro. QualityPro is the highest accreditation program available in the pest management industry. They provide education, training, and certification, setting the standard of excellence for professional pest management companies.

As they state on their website, “QualityPro is the only national credentialing authority of the professional pest management industry. Less than 3% of pest control companies in the U.S. have earned this prestigious accreditation.”

Striving for Environmentally Sound Solutions

At Waynes we use cutting-edge, environmentally sound methods to fight unwanted pests. For example, we are currently utilizing small scale exclusion to seal small holes on the exterior of the home to prevent the invasion of ants and other small insects. On sensitive accounts, we can use FIFRA 25(b) exempt botanical pesticides developed through extensive scientific research and proven effective. We have begun to use the In2Care Mosquito Trap that attracts and kills Aedes mosquitoes using novel and green ingredients that target both larvae and adults.

Every day we become more and more environmentally in-tune, testing new microencapsulated products such as Scion that provide a longer-lasting residual effect.
