The threats of pests and rodents are very real. Did you know cockroaches trigger asthma? Have you heard that termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage every year in the U.S.? Perhaps you weren't aware that rodents and ants contaminate food? Mosquitoes and West Nile Virus, ticks and Lyme Disease are serious threats to our health according to the National Pest Management Association. Most people do not think about pest control until there is a problem, but one way to reduce pesticide use is ongoing maintenance and prevention.
Thomas Pest Services is proud to be on the forefront of product development and involved in the National Pest Management Association. This affiliation with many others allows us to provide the most up to date products and methods available. This includes our green pest control services with our green products and utilizing an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. Inspection and monitoring are key to IPM, indentifying areas where pests enter, hide, feed, and reproduce. With mindset, addressing an issue before it becomes a problem reduces the amount of products to be applied.
Why should you consider green pest services?
- Someone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma.
- There are children, pets, pregnant women or elderly.
- You want to use the most natural options in and around your home.
- Green pest control protects the environment.
How do Thomas Pest Service’s green products work?
Octopamine is a key neurotransmitter found in invertebrates (i.e. insects). Octopamine regulates their heart rate, movement, behavior and metabolism. This unique molecular structure in these products targets and blocks the Octopamine neurotransmitter receptors in insects. Blocking Octopamine results in a total breakdown of the insect’s central nervous system. Mammals, birds and fish do not have receptors for Octopamine, so the products have no adverse effect on them.
