On a daily basis, Plunkett’s Pest Control’s normal treatment recommendations often align with “green” methods and materials. We have been recommending and practicing green and eco-friendly pest control for years. Because we’ve been doing it for so long already, our Technical Director, Jay Bruesch, is actually a nationally known keynote speaker and industry trainer on eco-friendly and green pest control best practices around the country.
Proactive Pest Management
By practicing the principles of Integrated Pest Management daily, a more ecologically sustainable model of commercial pest management naturally occurs. Inasmuch as “green” practices can be defined as those that conserve natural resources, i.e. practices that contribute minimally to pollution, protect health and property, and that do not rely primarily on the use of pesticides, we rely more on inspection and monitoring than on “preventive applications” of pesticides, and we use sanitation and exclusion to deny pests the things they need to survive.
Establishing lines of defense that enable us to intercept pests before they become a problem inside minimizes the use of pesticides. The more pest elimination can be accomplished outside of buildings; the less work needs to be done within.
