Many parents and pet-parents are hesitant to treat pests in their homes because of the risk of hazardous chemicals involved.

If you have pests in your home, your first instinct is to kill every bug you see in any and every way possible. However, when you actually read the warning labels on insecticides, it is enough to alarm anyone. Not only are they unhealthy for the environment, they are also not the most natural solutions to have around your family and pets. In short, most pesticides create more problems than they solve.
For example, many insecticides are not only far from eco-friendly, they are not really all that effective. They may kill off a lot of pests at first, but the insects will just develop a resistance to the insecticide and come back stronger than ever. There are also the unintended side effects to consider. Many pesticides could kill other animals besides those nasty pests. Using a company that uses green pest control products can minimize the dangerous chemicals around your home but also your family as well.
