As in so many other areas in our lives, eco-friendly choices are on the upswing. Healthier and more natural choices are popping up in almost all markets, and the pest control industry is no exception. After all, your home is your sanctuary and a green termite control solution is so much better than fumigation.
Green Solutions to Termite & Pest Control
When confronted with a serious pest infestation in your home such as termites or rodents, it’s only natural to want to throw a nuclear solution at them to ensure their eradication. The only problem is such solutions prove to be risky for you and your family. In fact, John Wargo, director of the Yale Center for Children’s Environmental Health advocates that children are more affected by exposure to chemical pesticides because their bodies are still developing. He states, “More than 90% of pesticides and their inert ingredients are never tested for their effects on developing nervous systems.” That’s reason enough to choose natural termite control when possible.
Ecola is a Leader in Green Termite Solutions
