GREEN PEST CONTROL
Protecting your home from pests is an important component to providing a safe environment for your family. We do this by exclusively using botanical and naturally derived products that have been patented to deliver a safe and less toxic approach to pest control. These products utilize essential oils such as wintergreen, peppermint, rosemary, geraniol, mineral oil, diatomaceous earth, and other natural enzymes. Scents like balsam fir oil can be used to repel rodents in hard to reach areas or interiors of cars or machinery left outside.
PLANT OILS AND ORGANIC POWDERS
These patented plant oil mixes have active ingredients which target and block a key neurotransmitter receptor site for octopamine, which is found only in invertebrates (i.e. insects). Mammals do not have these receptors for octopamine, so these plant oils have no adverse effect on mammals. Your pets are safe! Many of the plant oils are classified as “Generally Recognized As Safe” (GRAS) and/or are approved for food and beverage consumption by the U.S. FDA. Your family will never be exposed to dangerous chemicals!
Low-Toxicity Pesticides are new products which are more effective and have a lower toxicity than conventional pesticides. Dupont has developed a product that earned the award for Team Innovation from the American Chemical Society. Arilon is bio-activated and targets natural enzymes in insects, not non-target organisms, like mammals. It works only on pests, so it’s safe for the environment. Our goal is to not only keep your family safe from dangerous pests, but to keep them safe from toxic or dangerous chemicals.
RATS AND MICE
Rodents are a major problem, they spread disease, and multiply quickly. Rats can fit through a hole the size of a quarter, mice through a dime-sized hole. The best method to keep rodents out of your home is to block entry points; to do this we use steel wire screens that cannot be chewed through by rats. If rodents have already made their way in, we eradicate them by placing tamper resistant stations that hold rat bait securely so that pets and children are not directly exposed to the bait. For enclosed areas such as cars, cabinetry, and narrow spaces, we will use botanical rodent repellents that last up to 30 days.
Because termites can cause significant damage to your property, you must address the problem immediately. The two types of termites commonly found in Southern California are drywood termites and subterranean termites. We always address the source not just the symptom, so we use non-repellent products that target the entire colony. Structural fumigation is still a good choice for drywood termites, but the development of newer more effective products which target the termite colony provide a convenient alternative. These products are injected into the wood and have little or no environmental impact and virtually no odor. We guarantee our work for 2 years. Contact us for more details!
Bees are an essential part of nature, but a swarming cloud of bees can be quite threatening. Their honeycombs can weigh more than 50 pounds and can cause major structural damage. European honey bees, the most common, are generally harmless, but the introduction of the Africanized honey bee demands care and expertise at all times. Our bee service includes removal of the hive and sealing up areas of entry. The work is done at night or before sunrise to ensure public safety. A vacuum can be used to remove bees, they can be treated with approved products, or they can be collected for relocation. A service guarantee of one year is given with the removal of the hive.
