Green Pest Control with the Environment in Mind
You don’t have to sacrifice quality of life for effective green pest control. And green pest control, contrary to popular perception, is not more expensive–it actually saves you money. Green practices take extra thought, but not usually extra cash.
Better Green Pest Control for Better Results
Environmentally sustainable pest control can be more effective than traditional methods. At the heart of this approach is the concept of integrated pest management, a strategic way of managing pests. Instead of broadcasting pesticides, experienced green pest control practitioners base programs on a comprehensive understanding of pest lifecycles, how they interact with the environment and how they are related to other pests. A program of coordinated techniques, such as inspections and monitoring, environmental remediation to eliminate conditions that attract pests, and using a combination of targeted methods for trapping, disrupting life cycles and halting feeding and metabolism is put in place. The emphasis is on strategic control that focuses on results with minimal impact to the environment and people in it.
What to Look for: Certification, Experience, and Innovation
Certification is a must when considering green pest control solutions. The National Pest Management Association is the recognized leader in third party verification of environmental practices. Knockout is one of just 135 companies out of 17,000 nationwide certified Quality Green Pro Green by the National Pest Management Association.
We have been applying green pest control techniques and strategies for over 15 years ago, before “going green” was a trend. As one of the first to use innovations such as Sentricon® to control termites when it was launched in 1995 and as one of the highest volume users of cutting edge bed bug remediation treatments, such as Cryonite®, we are in the vanguard of the green pest control movement. Our experience isn’t measured just in years, but also in the number and variety of pest control situations we have addressed.
“Caring for the environment is not just a nice thing to do. We know it has direct impact on employees,” said Knockout Pest Control CEO Arthur Katz. “It is why we made the investment to meet the comprehensive and stringent environmental standards set by the National Pest Management Association to qualify for the Quality Pro Green certification.”
