Our furry companions are among the best parts of our lives. They’re fun to spend time with, and they make us laugh even when we’re feeling down. Additionally, they serve as great alarm systems when it comes to intruders, even if the intruders are pests like roaches, rodents and more.
You’ll have to get pest control services once you find an infestation like that, but you need to make sure your pet is kept safe during the process. With Smithereen Pest Management services, you don’t have to worry about that. Learn all about our pet-friendly pest control methods.
Our Eco-Friendly Pest Management Methods
At Smithereen, we go to great lengths to ensure that all our pest control solutions are non-toxic and environmentally friendly. We don’t implement dangerous chemicals in our solutions, so you don’t have to worry about your pets being around. You don’t even need to take them out of the house when we’re performing our treatments.
Green Shield Certified
In recognition of our commitment to eco-friendly solutions, we have received the honor of becoming Green Shield Certified. This certification is bestowed by the Integrated Pest Management Institute of America, a non-profit, independent organization of scientists dedicated to promoting non-chemical pest control to keep our communities safe.
To earn this certification, we were audited by the IPM Institute and approved by their expert scientists. Our solutions passed their tests because we focus on education above all else. There are three primary steps to our initial approach that allow us to offer non-toxic pest control solutions.
- First, we inspect your home for signs of pests. This can come in the form of droppings, fur, eggs and other such remnants. This is how we assess just how widespread your infestation is.
- After assessing what kind of invaders you’re dealing with, we dive into research to learn about their habits and life cycles.
- Finally, we examine your home to discover whether or not there are factors within your control that are contributing to the infestation.
Integrated Pest Management Program
Once we’ve completed our inspection and gathered all the necessary information, we’ll compile an Integrated Pest Management Program uniquely suited for your individual situation. This plan will feature non-toxic, pet-friendly pest control and pest management strategies designed to expel your current pest problem and prevent future infestations from happening. Chemical methods are always a last resort for us, and your program will satisfy LEED eligibility requirements, meaning you don’t have to worry about environmental impact. Your family, including your pets, will be safe throughout the entire process. Contact Smithereen today for all your pest management needs.
