Welcome to Evergreen Pest Control & Cleaning Services
Once you’ve identified a pest intrusion, it’s time to take immediate action. Pest control methods can fall into two categories: biological or chemical. Learn about these two tactics and what control techniques are available to better choose the right one for your facility.
Biological pest control is the use of living organisms to help eliminate the infestation. This can be anything from predators to parasites to pathogens. One of the biggest advantages of natural methods is that they don’t involve the use of toxic chemicals. As a result, this method doesn’t harm humans or the environment. In addition, over time, pests don’t become resistant to the control solution. However, most biological methods are only feasible for small pest invasions like insects or plants, and they typically take some time to work.
Chemical pest control is the use of pesticides to destroy harmful insects or organisms. These solutions are typically easier to find and use than biological methods. Also, most chemicals produce faster, if not, instant results upon application. Examples include repellants, which are solutions that deter pests that crawl or fly within your perimeter or insecticides, that are substances that are designed to kill insects. Despite their many advantages, these toxins can pose health and environment threats upon exposure, but most modern chemical’s effects are only temporary.
With an active approach and the right products, you can ensure pests don’t get in the way of running your business or facility. Routine monitoring and a quick response can go a long way in preventing and controlling pests.
