Green Week = Green Pest Control?

After Green week there has been a lot of buzz on Green Pest Control.  Jump on the band wagon before it leaves town… What’s that? What is Green Pest Control?

Well unfortunately nobody knows, but for many of the proponents at the Green Pest Management Conference in Dallas, Green is the color of money. But they warn not to participate in “GREEN WASHING”.  They say be real about your efforts to offer a Green Pest Control Solution.  Despite the fact that there is no solid ground under such claims.

But, the good news is that there is hope for a greener pest control future.  With this big green wave that hits every year, more and more pest control operators are starting to move toward friendlier solutions.  Just the mere fact that they had so many show up for the conference is a step in the right direction.  Hopefully those that attended don’t take the green as in say what you want and get more “Green” from the customers.

The best Green Practice? – Do what is best for the customer with the least amount of exposure or risk to them and the environment.  Don’t take the easy road and just blanket a home with unnessesary products.  In my humble opinion, a well placed product can be much more effective then a mine-field of products.

And whatever you do, don’t just blanket yourself green when it doesn’t mean a thing to you!
