Green Pest Control Strategies

Green pest control is an eco-friendly strategy that employs alternatives to the legion of chemical products that are traditionally used to control unwanted infestations. Preventative maintenance plays a critical role amongst these strategies as both a first line of defense, and a continuous effort to combat the creepy-crawly forces of nature from taking over your home, plants, and property. Biopesticides are naturally occurring products and byproducts which can be used to control unwanted insect and rodent populations. There are many options available that can be categorized in this area. They use milder chemicals that are safer for the environment, as well as your family. If you read the labels, you are likely to see the names of ingredients that you are familiar with. To further assist your efforts, we have listed some helpful tips below.
Here are some helpful tips that you can use in your green pest control agenda:
–    Install door sweeps to prevent rodents, and other small critters from walking right through your front door like they own the place.
–    Seal up any holes, cracks, and crevices in and around your home that could be a potential entry point for unwanted intruders.
–    Keep your trash containers tightly sealed so that you do not unwittingly attract unwanted house guests.
–    Remove sources of stagnant water in and around your home, as they could be a potential breeding ground for blood-sucking insects.
–    Use products made with citronella oil to prevent mosquitoes, flies, fleas and ticks from ruining your day.
–    Purchase products that contain natural ingredients as those that are most active in the compound.
