There’s no argument that critters and pests can pose a serious health risk to the people inside your home. But how safe are pest control solutions? If you spot roaches, spiders, or mice in your home, hiring a company that offers eco-friendly pest control options is the best way to go. With safe solutions, your most vulnerable family members will be safe as we eliminate those unwanted pests from the premises.

DIY Pest Control is Convenient But It’s Not Safe

DIY projects can save you money, and they’re always sold as the most convenient solutions for your home. When it comes to pest control, that’s just not true. When you’re dealing with an infestation, it’s always best to hire the pros.

Diatomaceous Earth

Often touted as one of the best ways to eliminate pests, diatomaceous earth can also be harmful to small children, older adults, and those with respiratory conditions. The white powder essentially damages the mucous membranes of small insects, which kills them as they inhale the substance. Unfortunately, it can also harm people.

Vinegar and Bleach

Although many homeowners opt for these solutions, they can also be harmful to children and pets. Instead, it’s best to partner with a pest control company that offers environmentally safe pest extermination that effectively targets the problem in your home.

OTC Pest Control Products

There are a number of pest control products that can be purchased at big box stores. Although they advertise results, they are just less effective than the methods used by professional pest control companies. When we’re called to exterminate an infestation, our team will determine the best eco-friendly solution to eliminate your unique pest problem.

When you’re dealing with an infestation, it’s not the time to try to do it yourself. Ensure that your family is safe by calling the pros.

How Pest Control Has Changed

Pest control solutions have improved tremendously over the years. For example, most pest control companies spray Organophosphates throughout homes in order to eliminate pests. Although it was effective at removing pests, it was also highly toxic to humans and pets.

Today, safety regulations are in place to ensure that homes are treated without harming the people inside. At EcoCare Pest Control, we believe in taking it one step further. We offer eco-friendly pest control services that are safe for children and pets, and they don’t harm the environment in any way. We take a holistic approach when it comes to pest control by using a preventative treatment that covers the exterior and interior of your home.
