Harsh on Bugs, Not On You: 7 Advantages of Environmentally-Friendly Pest Control

Today, we are lucky to live in a more environmentally-friendly world than in the past. Things such as pest control are coming up with eco-friendly alternatives that are as great for the planet as they are for you. Not to mention, they do the job just as well, so why wouldn’t you use them? Still, there are some people out there that don’t believe the hype… they think the eco-friendly pest control option has to be less effective.

For those out there that need a bit more convincing, here are several benefits of cleaner pest control methods.

1. Longevity

Depending on what you need to be done to your home or office, pest control costs can add up. The longer you put it aside, the more work you’ll need.

That said, they’re absolutely worth it, you just want to make sure you’re getting the most bang for your buck.

Eco-friendly pest control practices are proven to have longer lasting results compared to their toxic counterparts. Insects get adjusted to chemical pest repellants rather quickly, so once they become immune, they become even harder to exterminate.

On the other hand, insects have a natural weakness against the cleaner extermination methods that are passed down to their offspring.

2. No Overpowering Smell

Those of you reading this that have had exterminators come in before know the smell all too well.

It’s a pungent scent that can take over the entirety of your house or office both inside and out. Then you’re stuck trying to cover up the scent with candles and sprays to no avail.

This can lead to a lack of comfort in your home that, quite frankly, you don’t have to put up with any longer. Choosing cleaner pest control methods means having the same extermination performed without the lasting odor.

3. Much Better for the Environment

This benefit is a bit obvious, however it’s so vastly important that it is worth repeating.

Every time you ask an exterminator to use chemicals and rid your residence or corporate space of bugs, you’re harming your own planet. Why choose that route when there are cleaner ways to do the same task?

If the toxins harming your environment don’t scare you then think about this: it’s harming your family’s health as well.

Such chemicals aren’t good for anyone to be breathing in. Your children, your pets, your spouse, and your coworkers are all inhaling harmful substances.

4. Protects Your Landscape

You and your spouse work hard to make sure those bushes are trimmed and the petunias are lined up perfectly. You’ve put in a lot of hours to achieve the perfect landscape for your yard.

To prevent the little buggers from coming into your home, your pest control team will have to protect the house from the outside.

If they use harmful chemicals for their extermination methods, those toxic chemicals are getting in or around your beautiful plants.

Not to mention, they have to be reapplied every few months. That means every few months, your plants go through the same harmful torture.

If the chemicals were to get into your soil, which they’re likely to do overtime, then it can prevent plants from being able to regrow in that patch ever again.

5. Zero Risk of Staining

The insecticide that many non-eco-friendly pest control companies use has a tendency to stain the areas in which they’re applied.

If applied too often, the chances increase for you to have stain spots inside or outside your house… not a good look.

Save yourself the countless hours of rubbing those spots down with ammonia and choose the eco-friendly pest control option from the get-go.

6. Better for Your Allergies

You’re bound to have someone in your household or in your corporate office that has respiratory issues such as asthma or allergies.

If you use chemical solutions for pest control, you’re creating a very uncomfortable (and dangerous) environment for them to live/work.

The toxins from insecticides will get into their air supply and can cause severe irritation to their lungs. Protect their well-being by going the environmentally-friendly route instead.

These practices are much more natural for humans and animals to breathe in without complications to your health.

7. No Huge Undertaking Is Required

One of the most frustrating parts about pest control companies that use harmful chemicals is having to quarantine your house and sometimes vacate the premises for several hours.

As soon as you book a date for them to come by, you have to seal off that area of your house and protect anything from possible contamination.

Because there are almost zero toxins inside of the eco-friendly solutions, you don’t have to break your neck to seal everything off. The company can come in and out without you needing to leave the house, or even the room.

Granted, you’d probably still prefer to not be in the room as they’re applying the eco-friendly options. But, you don’t have to go the extra mile to prepare for a pest control appointment.

Choose Eco-Friendly Pest Control for Your Home or Office!

Now that you’ve seen all the benefits that come with choosing an eco-friendly pest control company, it’s time to set an appointment.
