Many parents and pet-parents are hesitant to treat pests in their homes because of the risk of hazardous chemicals involved. However, rodents, insects, and other pests can cause just as much harm (or more) for your health in the home. Fortunately, there are eco-friendly pest control solutions that are much better options for little ones to be around. Here’s how green pest control works and why it’s the best option if you have kids or pets at home.
In cold weather areas with snow and below-freezing temperatures, animals have to seek shelter to ward off the cold. Bears hibernate in dens, rabbits and foxes retreat below ground, and citified squirrels are more than likely to invade nearby houses to set up their cozy and warm nests.
Having a family of squirrels wintering in your attic might make a charming storyline for a children’s book, but in reality, it’s a nuisance that nobody needs or wants.

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.
