What Makes Pest Control Eco-Friendly?
And When It’s the Right Choice
February 11, 2021
You’ll see it on most of the pest control websites you visit: eco-friendly services. The definition of eco-friendly is “not harmful to the environment.” That’s a pretty broad definition! So, what does it actually mean, and is it beneficial for you and your family? Is it as effective as standard pest control measures? Today, we’re going over what it means to have pest control that’s eco-friendly and when chemical-free options might not be enough.
What to Know About Pest Control That’s Eco-Friendly
Eco-friendly pest control companies use products that utilize biological controls like scents, tastes, and oils combined with safer, greener chemicals. Some examples of eco-friendly, chemical-free pest control include:
- Using lavender or peppermint oil to keep spiders away
- Get rid of bed bugs using heat treatments
- Transporting a beehive to a new location
Benefits of Eco-Friendly Services

When Other Options Are Necessary
Like everything, you need to weigh the pros and cons of using an eco-friendly service. There are some instances when it is safer for your family to use more substantial methods of pest control, often with the help of chemicals. For example, termites are incredibly destructive pests that require immediate treatment utilizing the most reliable methods.
