Atlanta #3 Most Pest Infested City

According to a new study out by Orkin, Atlanta ranks #3 among the U.S.’s most pest infested cities and ranks #1 for mosquitoes.  There is little explanation as to why bugs are found in certain cities more than others.  Two common factors are climate and building infrastructure of the area.

Knowing that Atlanta ranks so high on both of these lists it is important that you keep your property protected from pests and mosquitoes.  A regularly scheduled pest control program and mosquito control program will not only get rid of bugs but it will assist in keeping the bugs away.  Our NorPest Green pest control program and our Green Mosquito Control program are customized plans that are developed specifically for the needs of you and your property by one of our highly trained technicians.  For more information on NorPest Green visit HERE, for more information on Green Mosquito Control visit HERE.

EPA Ban on Rat & Mice Killers

The EPA is banning 12 popular rat and mouse killers that are available to the public.  They are banning the product after a 2011 ban requiring rodent-killing products to stop using anticlotting chemical.  The company that makes these 12 products, D-Con, has refused to meet EPA regulations.

“In a move to protect children and pets from toxic chemical poisoning, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is making moves to ban 12 popular mouse- and rat-poisoning products sold under the D-Con brand name. Products included in the proposed ban include D-Con’s pellet, bait bits, and ready-mixed formulations.

EPA says it’s banning the products—as early as the end of February—because “they cause unreasonable and unnecessary risks to children’s health and the environment, without overriding benefits.”

The article and the EPA both suggest getting rid of rats and mice in non-poisonous ways such as sealing out pests, not leaving out food for pests to eat, making your yard less appealing to mice, and being kind!!

For pest control, the solution is simple: NorPest Green…Pest Control the way Nature Intended. Call Northwest Exterminating.

 

What is Green Pest Control?

Q. What is Green Pest Control?

Green Pest Control is a way of eliminating pests while having the lowest environmental impact possible.  There are many “green” options to traditional pest control methods that use harmful chemicals.  Our Green Pest Control, NorPest Green, is a program that uses the most up to date technology and products for getting rid of pests.

Times have changed and people are concerned about the health of their homes, children, and pets…and we couldn’t agree more. As stated above, NorPest Green gets rid of pests while maintaining the lowest environmental impact possible.  The active ingredients in our products are derived from flowers, plants, and natural elements from the Earth…no harsh chemicals and is still just as effective as traditional pest control methods.

We also use the 5 step IPM process (integrated pest management) which is “an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices.”

The History of Pest Control

Since the advent of agriculture, humans have needed a means to prevent pests from destroying their crops. Techniques such as crop rotation, intercropping and selective breeding of pest-resistant plants sought to make plants less desirable to weeds as well as herbivores. Nowadays, if your garden seems a delectable treat, Northwest offers modern methods through Lawn Care and Wildlife services to tackle these problems.

The traditional idea most people have of pest control involves the use of pesticides. Chemical pesticides, substances intended for the prevention of pests, aim to protect plants by producing an effect that deters, incapacitates, or kills pests. Historians credit Sumerians as the first known civilization to employ pesticides by using sulfur compounds to rid their crops in 2500 B.C. The Egyptians, as well as Chinese, used natural products such as herbs and oils to prevent infestation.  With NorPest Green and other Green services, Northwest takes after these ancient societies by using natural methods that eliminate pests with minimal harm to the ecological balance of the environment. We don’t just do pest management – we create healthier living and working environments.

The modern history of pest control began in the 18th and 19th century with the advent of widespread industrialization and mechanization. With the introduction of chemical compounds pyrethrum and derris, pest control became more widespread. The early 20th century saw another change in the pest control industry, with the use of DDT and herbicides. After the 1962 publishing of Rachel Carson’s book “Silent Spring,” the use of known harmful chemicals such as DDT came to a halt. Since then, the shift in pest management has been towards more traditional and natural pest management.

As stated earlier, Northwest maintains a commitment to creating healthier living and work environments by providing green pest control. We know the importance of protecting the health of our clients, their residences and workplaces by offering products that prevent pests without incurring ecological damage. As the Southeast’s leader in Green pest control, Northwest has proven that our products can control pests the way nature intended. We know that this is the future in pest management and hope you become a part of it too by joining the Northwest family.

Why Do I Need an Inspection for Pest Control?

Why do I need an inspection before you treat my home for pests?

The short answer is because every situation is different.  A professional exterminating company will thoroughly inspect both the interior and exterior of a structure to determine the identity of a pest(s), the entry point(s), the severity of the issue, and a customized treatment plan that is suited for your home or business.  The customized plan will include the type of treatment to be done by a professional exterminator as well as recommendations for the home or business owner that will prevent the insects from returning.   By having a thorough inspection of your home, you can be assured that Northwest Exterminating isn’t just spraying your home without knowing the real reason why and will, in turn, reduce the chance of us having to return before your next scheduled visit.

While one treatment may eliminate current pest issues, we recommend ongoing service to prevent future pest problems. NorPest Green quarterly visits, once every three months, will ensure your home and family are protected from pests year round.

Bugs and Your Health

MosquitoesThe early spring has brought pests out in full force and we suspect that they will not be slowing down anytime soon.  Not only are bugs annoying but they’re a health concern as well.

  • West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, dog heartworm – mosquitoes
  • Lyme disease – ticks
  • Rabies – rodents
  • Allergies & Asthma – cockroaches
  • Food Contamination – cockroaches, mice/rats
  • Salmonella – cockroaches, house flies
  • Skin irritation and rashes – lice, fleas, bed bugs, mites
  • Venomous bites & stings (that can be accompanied by severe or life threatening reactions) - black widow, brown recluse, scorpion, snakes
  • Painful stings (that can be accompanied by severe or life threatening reactions) – fire ants, yellow jackets, hornets, wasps

Pests can carry diseases and cause areas to be unsanitary.  These are issues of concern for both homes and businesses.  Even the cleanest homes can have bug problems in an environment like this.  Carpenter bees, mosquitoes, ants, yellow jackets, silverfish, and other pests have recently been invading properties.  If you’re in the Atlanta, Columbus, Savannah, or Nashville area, call Northwest Exterminating.  Our NorPest Green program was developed exclusively by Northwest Exterminating to get rid of pests using the lowest environmental impact possible.  A Northwest representative will develop a customized plan to target those pests while maintaining the health of your home.
