Organic Pest Control
Organic Pest Control
“Safe,” “Green” or “Organic” Pest Control
“Organic pest control” has recently become a popular advertising gimmick used by the pest control industry. It is illegal in California to advertise pest control products as “EPA registered,” “non-toxic” or “safe” for humans, children or pets. Clever advertisers invented the term “organic pest control” because safety is often associated with the term organic. However, the definition of “organic” as it applies to pest control: Organic – noting or pertaining to a class of chemical compounds that formerly comprised only those existing in or derived from plants or animals, but that now includes all other compounds of carbon. Considering organic pest control?

Reduce Pests Without Pesticide
Integrated Pest Management is an environmentally sensitive approach to pest control that relies on a combination of common sense practices. When used in conjunction with regularly scheduled botanical pest control treatments, integrated pest management practices are effective at minimizing pests. The I.P.M. approach can be applied to both agricultural and non-agricultural settings, such as the home, garden, and workplace. Integrated Pest Management is only part of the battle in controlling the pest population. Regularly scheduled pest organic pest control control services will help to further eliminate pests from your establishment. Here are some suggestions for reducing pests at home:
- Vegetation, shrubs, trees, debris and wood mulch should be kept at least one foot away from structures.
- Cracks and crevices in walls, floors and pavement and vent openings are either sealed or eliminated.
- Cabinets, shelves (including garage storage) are thoroughly cleaned at least twice yearly.
- Food contaminated dishes, utensils and preparation surfaces are cleaned by the end of each day.
- Garbage cans and dumpsters are cleaned regularly.
- Litter is collected and disposed of at least once a week.
Inspection & Treatment
