PET & FAMILY-FRIENDLY PORTLAND ORGANIC PEST CONTROL
In an effort to protect the planet and save Mother Earth, the last decade has seen a proliferation of terms such as environmentally safe, eco-friendly, natural, organic, green, sustainable, non-toxic, earth-friendly—the list can go on and on.
Agriculture, food, energy, electronics and technology, manufacturing, and retail are just some of the major industries that have taken drastic measures to help protect the environment from irreparable devastation. The same is true for the pest control industry. For this reason, ANT & GARDEN ORGANIC PEST CONTROL in Beaverton, OR has taken a huge step to help conserve Mother Earth’s resources and prevent damaging contributions to air, water, and land pollution by using only safe and eco-friendly Portland organic pest control methods.
ORGANIC, NATURAL, NON-TOXIC, ECO-FRIENDLY PEST CONTROL: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE REALLY?
Organic. Natural. Non-Toxic. Eco-Friendly. In the truest sense, there are slight variations in these popular terms used for modern-day Portland organic pest control methods but they all point to one thing—eliminating and controlling residential and agricultural pests without harming the environment. Gone are the days when Portland pest control companies solely relied on chemical formulations to deal with pest problems without carefully considering the long-term devastating effects they have on our surroundings. Let’s delve a little deeper into what these environment-sensitive pest control measures really mean.
ORGANIC PEST CONTROL
Products used in an organic pest control approach do not contain synthetic substances or chemicals. Instead, their ingredients are naturally occurring. These include essential oils, spices, cider, plant extracts, herbs, and even vegetable or fruit juice and rind. Just because ingredients are derived from nature doesn’t necessarily mean they are totally safe. They should be used in the right amounts or else these same ingredients can also be harmful and toxic. That is why you need a Portland organic pest control expert to implement an effective pest control program to address, control, and prevent a pest infestation.
My Portland organic pest control approach only uses non-toxic, natural, organic, and eco-friendly ingredients that are safe for you, your family, and your pets!
NATURAL PEST CONTROL
Natural pest control generally involves the use of naturally derived methods to discourage the proliferation of common household and garden pests. Its main goal is to discourage, reduce and avoid pest infestations using natural barriers such as cultivating specific plant species that repel target pests and introducing beneficial insects like bees, ladybugs, predatory wasps, hoverflies, praying mantises, ground beetles, green lacewings, spiders, and soldier beetles to eradicate and control pest populations. Natural pest control is a fundamental part of integrated pest management (IPM) programs.
I only use natural, organic, non-toxic, and eco-friendly ingredients in my Portland organic pest control program so you, your family, and your pets are not harmed!
NON-TOXIC PEST CONTROL
In the strictest sense, non-toxic pest control involves the use of eradication and preventive methods that are generally safe for other living organisms found in the surrounding areas where pests abound. Therefore, purely mechanical means of killing or deterring pests are employed. These include the use of traps, bait stations, or other forms of treatment that don’t actually kill pests but rather allow their physical removal from the infested area. Non-toxic pest control methods also work by making an area less attractive to pests so there is a lesser tendency for them to reproduce or an infestation to develop or progress.
Ant & Garden’s organic pest control treatments only use non-toxic ingredients to keep your family and pets safe and healthy at all times!
ECO-FRIENDLY PEST CONTROL
The term eco-friendly pest control is self-explanatory and involves the use of pest control measures that are not just kind to the environment—they’re also formulated using sustainable ingredients. In a way, eco-friendly pest control is related to non-toxic approaches to pest eradication since both of them have a lower impact on the environment compared to all other pest control options. That being said, eco-friendly pest control isn’t really a tightly defined methodical approach to the elimination, control, and prevention of pests. Generally speaking, it is more of a concept rather than an actual classification of pest control treatments.
The eco-friendly ingredients in my Portland organic pest control program ensure the safety and protection of our environment!
