Just wanted to add a few more thoughts on Gerry’s post: Seeing the Green Light
Right vs. Left, Traditional pest controllers vs. environmentalists
“How Green is the pest control when you have to take 3 extra trips to the property?”
There is definitely a balance. As Bulwark’s marketer I try not to even broach the subject of “green pest control”. Does Bulwark Exterminating offer Green Pest Control? Yes Bulwark does offer an all natural pest control solution for those that request it. In fact Bulwark was featured in the WSJ last year because of it, but people have very different concepts of what “Green” is. So I redefine the conversation. Do you want an all natural pest control solution that may be a little less effective or do you want our more effective regular service which we make low-impact and which only uses products that fall into the lower caution labels? By the way, arsenic works for killing bugs as well, and it’s ALL NATURAL, but I would never advise using arsenic for pest control. Just because something is organic or all natural doesn’t mean it is safe. Further making a synthetic product based on natural products may require less energy, less gas, and fewer bulldozers running over trees to cultivate the natural product. But Bulwark also uses products that we feel are best for our technician’s health. In fact, there are certain “all natural/organic” pesticides that we don’t use because of potential chronic risks. All of our products are found in the caution label range. By putting the safety of our technicians first and protecting them, we are in turn protecting our customers, their families, and their beloved pets.
And as time rolls forward and better products and techniques are created, Bulwark will evolve and improve and embrace those pest control advances.
