Do You Offer Non-Toxic Pest Control in Temecula?
“Non-toxic pest control” is an interesting phrase. We get calls from potential customers frequently asking if we offer non-toxic pesticides. Pesticides, by their definition, are toxic. They are meant to eliminate unwanted pests and keep them from coming back. The Structural Pest Control Board of California actually prohibits California pest control companies from using the phrase “non-toxic pest control” in their advertising, since it can be misleading and confusing to consumers.
Does that mean that pesticides are unsafe to use in your home or business? No. When used correctly by trained pest control technicians, pesticides are safe to use around humans and pets.
A lot of what goes into making pesticides safe to use in and around your home has to do with dosing. A trained pest control technician will know how to prepare or dilute a pesticide according to where it is being used, and whether or not there are children or pets in the home.
On a similar note, we also get asked a lot if we are able to provide organic pest control or green pest control. Organic pest control refers to methods and the use of products that don’t rely on man-made chemicals, and we do offer organic pest control options for our Temecula, Murrieta, and Fallbrook customers. Organic pest control can be effective to eliminate certain types of pest problems, but it should be noted that it may not offer the residual effects that many property owners are looking for. However, we know that organic pest control is important to many of our customers, so we offer it as an option.
If you have questions about the toxicity of the products being used by our Temecula pest control company, or about our organic pest control options, we’d be happy to answer them. Give us a call or contact us to schedule an appointment where one of our technicians can come out to your home so you can learn more about the pest control methods we offer in Temecula, Murrieta, and Fallbrook.
