Nature Friendly Pest Control

Wildwoods Pest Control has the environment in mind when we do pest control treatments.  Employing an approach to pest control called “Integrated Pest Management”, we believe that each home should be treated differently because each home is unique.  We take the time to identify the source of the infestation and develop a custom plan to target your pest issues.  This can be done in a variety of ways, but we take the time to remove conducive conditions like trimming shrubs, addressing moisture issues and removing food sources.   By doing this, we are able to reduce the amount of pesticides that would typically be used in a less structured approach.

In addition to Integrated Pest Management, we choose our pest control products carefully.  By avoiding products that we feel have the possibility to place the smaller members of your family at risk, we keep you and your family safe.  The products that we use have no fumes or odors and do not require you to leave the house while it airs out.  You can feel confident that the treatment that is done at your house will not cause any harm to your family or your home.

Why they work?

The first question that most people ask when they find out how safe our products are is, “will this actually get rid of my pest problem?”.  The answer to this question is, of course, “yes”.  Without getting too technical, the reason that these products are effective is because of the advancements in science and chemistry.  Maybe in the past a pest control applicator would just spray highly toxic products that would kill everything, but today’s products are far more targeted and advanced.  For example, some products have active ingredients that only work within the biology of an exoskeleton (insect).

What Toxicity Means

Technically, anything can be “toxic”.  Even water, if ingested in excessive amounts can become toxic since “toxicity” is just a degree in which a substance can damage an organism.  So, what is really important is actually dosage.  When we use pest control products, we use the correct dosage.  This goes back to integrated pest management.  It is not just the products that we use that makes our treatments safe for you and your family, but also how we use them.

If you have more questions regarding our pest control treatments, please give us a call and we would be happy to talk with you.
