How often should I have eco-friendly pest removal services performed?  

Some people have a hard time imagining a world without the many cleaning products we use, but there are many more ways to protect our environment that do not involve using chemicals. With sustainability being one of the biggest trends among millennials, more and more homeowners are looking for environmentally friendly alternatives to keep their homes clean and free of pests.

The amount of pest control a home requires throughout the year depends on several factors. In general, homes in high-risk areas will require more frequent treatments until the problem is under control. Depending on the severity of the infestation, and how long it has been going on, some pests will take months to be completely eradicated. 

Other factors that affect how often pest removal services should be performed include the type and severity of the infestation, as well as the climate in which the property is located. For instance, restaurants and other businesses with large amounts of food scraps in the trash may have more severe pest infestations than single-family homes and may need to receive more frequent pest control treatments until the problems are under control. 

Eco-friendly pest control uses natural methods that do not require the spraying of harsh chemicals over your yard and surrounding landscape. This is much better for the health of your grass, bushes, flowers, and trees than traditional pest control methods that can cause them to wither and die when they are repeatedly sprayed with chemical solutions. 

Using eco-friendly pest control techniques also allows you to enjoy your outdoor space without worrying about children or pets finding, tampering with, or consuming the chemicals used to treat the property. This is a major benefit for families who have pets that live outdoors and are at risk of ingesting harmful chemicals. 

Additionally, eco-friendly pest control does not leave a strong odor, or cause you to evacuate the area during treatment like some conventional pest controls do. This makes it a good option for those who have young children or sensitive family members living at the home.
