GO GREEN

It is our responsibility to protect the environment for today and tomorrow.

PEST MANAGEMENT WITH A GREEN CONSCIENCE


At the heart of our service is a passionate commitment to make the world a better place. This is how we do it.

METHODS

Prevention trumps all treatment methods. Absolutely no "routine" pesticide applications. Keep material out of the environment. Give preference to methods that are target-specific. Use mechanical methods wherever possible to control pests with the least environmental impact. Target sources to eliminate pests with the least pesticide.

INNOVATION

Aggressively seek and develop sustainable, efficient solutions to protect and improve the environment. Be creative. Solve complex problems other companies won't. Thrive in the combination of science and technology.

MATERIALS

Select materials with the greatest efficacy and least environmental impact; low risk, low odor, low volatility and non-permanent. Give preference to naturally occurring materials and processes. Choose materials that are target-specific and prevent non-target risk.

STEWARDSHIP

Reduce waste. Prioritize suppliers committed to environmental sustainability. Learn continuously and change course when smarter methods or materials are available. Stay committed to communication and collaboration with clients. Embrace education. Share what we know and protect the environment together.
