Regular Pest Control

August 18th, 2015

fire antsFor many people, pest control is about the most unpleasant topic to think about. So it may be a little ironic that regularly addressing pest control is the best way to not have to constantly think about it.

Pests are a fact of life, particularly here in Florida. Our tropical climate attracts lots of good things—world-class golf courses and a steady tournament schedule, spring training, amusement parks—and unfortunately, pests.

Pests, though, can be kept outside your home through a careful maintenance schedule that won’t threaten your health or the larger environment.

Green Pest Control Stresses Prevention

Green Solutions Lawn Care and Pest Control in Tampa is a leader in promoting environmentally sound pest control solutions for homes and businesses.

We use applications that are safe for humans and animals. But more than that, we work with homeowners, landlords, and building managers to identify leaks, holes, and cracks that make the building susceptible to pest entry, recommend repairs, and install effective barriers.

Preventing the critters from getting in will prevent an infestation. Sure, the occasional fly may come in an open door, but that’s nothing compared to an invasion of red ants or the discovery of an eight-legged guest.

Organic Measures to Prevent Infestations

We are a certified GreenPro provider as designated by the National Pest Management Association. This certifies us as an eco-effective firm that uses pest management techniques deemed to be the lowest risk to people, property, and the environment.

We use botanical extracts, boric acid, bait, and diatomaceous earth in our overall treatment and prevention plan.

Diatomaceous earth is a naturally occurring sedimentary rock that crumbles into a powder. It actually absorbs lipids from insects’ exoskeletons and dehydrates them. It’s particularly effective against some of the more common scourges including:

  • Cockroaches
  • Ants
  • Dust mites
  • Fleas
  • Bedbugs

Farmers use it to keep pests outside of grain storage silos.
