by May 22, 2023

When it comes to keeping pests out of your home, eliminating every bug, rodent, and egg is important so an infestation will not come back. But bringing in harmful chemicals to eradicate an infestation does not leave you and your family better off. With eco-friendly pest control, you can get the best of both worlds, leading to a pest-free and chemical-free home. But with so much information out there about natural solutions  to rid your home of pests, you may question whether eco-friendly pest control treatments actually work on pests. While not all DIY methods can give you the best results, there are still chemical-free treatments that are highly effective in getting rid of pest infestations.

What kind of pests can you treat with eco-friendly pest control?

Fortunately, there is an eco-friendly treatment for just about every pest you could possibly have a run in with in your home. By choosing a pest control company that specializes in green treatments, you can be sure there won’t be any harmful chemicals left behind that could affect your family or pets. Eco-friendly treatments can eradicate pest infestations such as:

  • Termites can be safely eliminated with an electro-magnetic gun treatment or an Advanced Termite Bait System quickly while using no chemicals.
  • Bed bug infestations can be eradicated using fungal biopesticides that the insects bring back to their nests, infecting more insects.
  • Mosquitoes can be taken out with a green, larvicide that targets mosquitoes only and does not affect beneficial insects like butterflies and bees.
  • Rodents can be drawn out of the home with bait, then trapped, and removed from the property.

Will my home need to be treated more often with green solutions?

Eco-friendly pest control not only can last as long as more common pesticides, it can also even do a better job of keeping pests away. By using biopesticides and other methods, getting rid of pests and keeping harsh chemicals out of your home can both be possible. Instead of just spraying for bugs, thoughtful practices can help entice pests away from you home and pass biopesticides from pest to nest to eliminate the entire infestation in a short period of time.

Eco-friendly pest control also puts a considerable amount of attention on preventing pests from getting into your home in the first place. Inspecting your home for entry points and leaking faucets or other attractions that may draw pests into your home and making repairs will ensure that your home will stay pest free without using harsh chemical treatments.

By using methods that are friendly to the environment, you can still have your pest problem eradicated without having to worry about the impact from the treatment on your surfaces and yard. For eco-friendly pest control solutions in Downingtown, PA, call the professionals at ECPC  today!
