Smithereen offers Green Shield Certified Service to all of our Commercial and Residential customers. Our Green Shield service has been audited and approved by the expert scientists at the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Institute of America, a non-profit third party organization that promotes non-chemical pest control. We provide this service as a sign of our commitment to the safety of our customers and the communities in which they live, work, and play.
Easy on the Environment, Hard on Pests
Our organic pest control approach emphasizes education. Normally we will start by doing all of the following:
- Search for signs of pests (droppings, eggs, fur, etc) to assess the extent of the infestation.
- We’ll research the habits and life cycles of the vermin in your home or business.
- We’ll inspect your site for you to find out if there are factors in your control contributing to the pest population.
After these steps are completed, we’ll create your Integrated Pest Management Program. This plan will focus on pest prevention and only uses chemical methods as a last resort. This program will satisfy LEED® eligibility requirements and is a perfect fit for anyone looking to reduce their pest control impact. We’re also proud to report we are the first, and one of the few, pest management companies providing Green Shield Certified Service in Illinois.
