GREEN ECO-CONSCIOUS PEST CONTROL
Services for the Environmentally Conscious
Premier Pest Control now offers a variety of “green” products to combat your pest problems. In the past, pest control experts and homeowners alike experienced a problem finding truly effective green products. In theory, using peppermint extract (for example) seemed like a safe alternative for ant control, but the expense and effectiveness made it impractical. Thankfully, the push towards greener technologies is helping to propel pest management professionals in a new direction. With science behind us, new extracts and formulations have proven successful. We’ve recently begun changing our service programs by offering “green” alternatives to all of our service programs. It turns out peppermint extract, as mentioned above, works synergistically with other natural ingredients. Octoborate Tetrahydrate and boric acid work phenomenally on cockroaches, termites and ants – and it’s a naturally occurring mineral! The bark of juniper trees has an ingredient that kills and repels termites nearly as good as the leading termiticide! Natural oils are some of the fastest knockouts for wasps. Pyrethrum (an extract of the chrysanthemum plant) was hailed as a miracle pesticide, but that excitement was short lived due to the expense and importation from India and the short-lived nature of the bug-killing chemicals in it. These green chemicals have been around for years but science has finally found a way to make them effective and cost efficient. These old chemicals are only available in these new formulations to pest management professionals. With our knowledge of bug life cycles, habitats, modes-of-action and all of the weapons at our disposal – we’ll help protect you, your family, your pets and your house from the unwanted guests.
ONE-TIME WARRANTIED SERVICES:
General Pest Control:
If you have issues with the occasional invader insects like stink bugs, lady bugs, bees/wasps/hornets and sugar ants then this is the service for you. An interior and exterior service, the General Pest Control treatment protects your home for 90 days! Treatments target areas of concern inside the house, like the attic, basement sill plates, crawl spaces, pipe chases in the kitchen and bathrooms as well as the garage. Exterior treatments are made to the foundation, around windows and doors, along the soffits, eves and overhangs. No dangerous chemicals, no need to leave the house.
Carpenter Ant Initial Service:
Carpenter ants, as I am sure you have experienced are harder to exterminate than your occasional invaders. With that in mind, the treatment is similar to the general pest control but a bit more thorough. In addition to the previously stated, we’ll want to target sections of the house where moisture conditions are prevalent. For example, carpenter ant nests typically are located in garage walls, exterior walls of the home, in the sill plate in the basement and underneath sinks in the house. Drilling into suspect wood may be necessary. As part of our integrated approach to pest management – treatment strategies are formed on a case by case basis.
