Pesticides are used to kill, repel, or prevent bugs and critters from entering a home. Since pesticides are made from chemicals, they can be harmful to flowers, plants, and bushes if not applied correctly. Using a pest control company is the best way to ensure the safety of your plants while keeping unwanted pests away from the house. Why?
At Home Pro Pest Control we perform a thorough outdoor inspection to create a customized pest treatment plan for your house. By understanding the lay of the land, we can adjust plans so that any pesticides used will not impact your prized flower garden or your costly landscaping. We also look for non-pesticide solutions, like removing nests or filling holes, to keep bugs at bay.
Pest control professionals know how much of a spray to use and where to spray it so that it can achieve maximum effectiveness with minimal impact to plants. It’s also important to know when to spray a pesticide. For example, we don’t spray for bugs on extremely windy days when the chemicals could be carried to plants inadvertently. Similarly, if a large rainstorm is predicted, we avoid spraying knowing that the pesticide will likely be washed away and can be carried to nearby plant life.
The Right Pesticide for the Job
There are many different types of pesticides available, and choosing the one that will be most effective and safest for your family, pets, and the environment can be tricky. A pest control company will know what pesticide to choose to get the job done. At Home Pro Pest Control we use reduced-risk pesticides that are certified to be the safest alternative to conventional treatment methods for people, pets, and the environment. These pesticides have a low potential for contaminating groundwater and a lower toxicity on plants.
For Home Pro Pest Control the safety of children, pets, and the environment, is of the utmost importance. Our approach to pest control is one of integrated pest management. Instead of haphazardly spraying chemicals to kill bugs we discover the reason pests are present, attempt to use non-chemical means to fix the problem, and use reduced risk pesticides.
