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.
Risks of Conventional Pest Control
The purpose of pesticides is to deter and kill pests, but their chemical strength and concentration can pose serious risks to humans and animals nearby. Certain chemicals used in pesticides have been linked to the development of serious health conditions, and the risks increase when the skin comes in contact with them or if they are ingested. But it may surprise you to learn that greener options for pest control aren’t just less toxic for humans and furry companions, but they’re also often more cost-effective too.
Kid-Friendly Pest Control
Young children have a way of putting everything they find into their mouths and touching everything they can get their hands on. Childhood is an exciting time of exploration, but it’s up to parents to keep toxins out of reach as much as possible. Kid-friendly pest control solutions involve non-toxic products that are used with natural-based and organic compounds.
Pet-Friendly Pest Control
Your dogs and cats may be on their best behavior when you’re home, but what exactly does Fido and Kitty get up to when you’re not around? Household pets are notorious for getting into areas where they shouldn’t be when left unsupervised out of curiosity or when simply searching for a snack. For pet-friendly pest control methods, we target common pest areas that your pet frequents, such as the feeding area and entry points. But we use non-hazardous products and low-impact techniques to keep your furry friend out of harm’s way at all times.

Preventing Pests with Kids and Pets Around
Understandably, it can be very difficult to keep your home clean at all times when you live with kids, dogs, and cats. These family members are prone to spills and aren’t always the best at picking up after themselves. However, insects and rodents love messy homes and clutter because these areas provide warmth, food scraps, and comfortable nesting places. To prevent pest infestations and reduce the number of professional treatments required, keep your home and yard free of mold and debris, sweep up crumbs after meals, and vacuum your rugs on a regular basis.
