Exploring Environmentally-Friendly Pest Control Measures



More and more Canadians are turning to environmentally-friendly options to address everyday issues within our homes, including pest control. Let’s face it, no one wants to deal with insects, let alone destructive rodents that can wreak havoc on everything from wood and insolation to electrical systems. But having a safer way to deal with pest problems can set our minds at ease that we’re doing everything we can to protect our families while getting rid of and preventing nuisances from entering our homes.

Not only are organic pest control products environmentally friendly, but they’re also extremely effective in diminishing any signs of bugs, insects and other pests, while also leaving less side effects behind in our homes well after the pests have been exterminated.

When we conduct a home inspection, we’re always keeping our eyes open for signs of pests so we can relay the information back to either the homeowner (during a pre-inspection) or the potential buyer.

There are several benefits to avoiding chemical solutions. Here are three common reasons why eco-friendly pest control is the way to go in any household:

  1. Less irritating – if you suffer from asthma, allergies or any other respiratory issues, using non-chemical pest control minimizes irritation.
  2. Non-staining – while chemical-based pest control will likely remove a large portion of the problem, it can also leave behind unwanted stains.
  3. Low odour – Unlike strong chemicals, no smell will linger around your home after you’ve used eco-friendly products.


Locate and block entry points

It’s also important to locate the source of the pests entering the home, especially for larger home invaders like mice and rats, and determine the extent of the problem. After all, if you don’t block entry at the same time as combatting the problem, you could face these unpleasantries over and over.

Consider calling in an expert exterminator for any issue that’s beyond your control. This isn’t a problem you want to delay in solving, especially if you’re planning to sell your home anytime soon.
