Pest Control with a Conscience
Integrated Pest Management: Achieving balance with nature
As the world becomes more and more ecologically enlightened, so has Acenitec. For many years, we’ve sought to conduct business in a way that’s in balance with nature. This is no small feat, because we are inherently trying to keep nature – or certain parts of nature – at bay.
Whether it’s venomous spiders, termites, mosquitos or any other unwanted, harmful pests, we’re creating barriers, traps and protocols to eliminate them. But there are, in fact, beneficial organisms that we try to avoid, including those that are predatory on truly harmful pests, and those that help pollinate our crops and oxygen-producing plant life.
Integrated Pest Control means balancing efficacy with environmental concerns
“Anyone who cares about our environment and our earth should be concerned about how we use pesticides, herbicides and fertilization products.”
Gary Roberts, Acenitec President
Once dry, our treatments are harmful only to insects that walk on it
Outdoor chemical barriers are only placed around the near perimeter of your home
Mosquito pesticides are only placed where mosquitos are likely to reproduce or rest – not the entire yard, because this can kill beneficial pollinators. Again, prevention is the goal
Herbicides are far less toxic than insecticides
Pre-emergents are more environmentally friendly than post-emergents
There’s a lot you can do to limit pest problems without any chemicals at all. Check out some of our suggestions in Insect Intelligence.
