May is such a beautiful month. The sun is warmer, the air is fresh, and the world is once again turning green. May brings so much promise for a sweet summer to come.
So much of what we love about spring and summer depend upon the generosity of Mother Nature. We pay homage to that in May on ‘Love a Tree Day’ and ‘Learn About Composting Day.’ On these days, we acknowledge the abundance of our planet and reflect on protecting that abundance. But what about nature’s pests? Fortunately, there are Earth-friendly ways to keep pests out of your home while protecting the environment.
The pest control industry has a long history of using pesticides to eradicate destructive and nuisance pests. However, new alternative and earth-friendly solutions are proving effective at the same job without exposing families or our Earth to harmful chemicals. Ecola Termite & Pest Control is a leader in alternative pest control that fits the lifestyle of Earth-conscious homeowners.
— Ecola Heat: Ecola Heat is an alternative to whole-house fumigation, which requires families to leave their homes for about three days. Ecola Heat targets many pests at once, killing termites, bed bugs, roaches, and ants. It works in about only eight hours by heating the temperature in your home to 180 degrees.
— Electro-Gun: This process solves the problem of termites in a localized part of your home or business. It sends a high-voltage current into the wood, killing termites as the current flows through their tunnels.
— Borates: Borates are salts that can be applied onto wood surfaces, concrete, soil, and your foundation. When termites ingest it, they can no longer absorb nutrients and thus starve to death.
— Orange Oil: D-limonene is the active ingredient in orange oil. It is extracted from the rinds of oranges and kills termites upon contact.
Ecola has found that their effective Earth-friendly treatments are convenient and economical for people too. It’s a win-win — except for the pests.
