By now your business is probably already shifting gears to be more environmentally responsible, or simply put going green. With everything from energy saving equipment and appliances to going paperless in the billing department, now more than ever, green business practice is important. But how about when it comes to your business facility’s pest control management, have you gone green? Green pest control is another rising trend but it is not just for trends sake. Here are a few reasons why businesses in Seattle, Salt Lake City, Portland and throughout the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain regions have gone green in their pest control practices.
Environmentally friendly - As a business owner, you have a responsibility to the environment in order to protect our resources, families, and future generations. Not all businesses acknowledge this responsibility but green pest control is a great place to start. No longer are the mass use of chemicals and pesticides the ideal solution to get rid of pests. Today, it is more about finding innovative solutions to get rid of pests while using minimal to no harsh chemicals.
Less use of pesticides - A green pest control approach means that the focus is less on the use of pesticides to treat pest infestations. Instead, the use of more natural pest control products becomes the focus. Many pest control products are eco-friendly using natural ingredients to eradicate pests such as boric acid, diatomaceous earth, naturally occurring microbes, parasites and bioremediation.
Less chance of pest infestations - A major aspect of green pest control becomes the prevention of pest infestations rather than waiting for a pest to strike and then treating it. With Sprague’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach, business staff becomes educated on being proactive when it comes to pests including ways to prevent pests altogether. No longer is pest control just a job for the pest professionals but for the employees of a business as well. A collective effort to prevent pests will help to protect your hard earned image and reputation as a business.
