how integrated pest management takes pollinators into considerationAs spring is arriving in the wonderful state of Virginia, the weather is getting warmer, and the days are getting longer. Insects and other pests are starting to make themselves at home in houses, yards, and gardens across the state. It is one of those annoying facts of life that cannot be avoided. 

Why Is Eco-Friendly Pest Control Important in Virginia?

While it may seem easy to just go to the store and pick up a can of bug killer, oftentimes, store-bought pesticides contain dangerous chemicals that can be hazardous to the health of your family, as well as the environment. That is why it is important to work with an eco-friendly pest control company.

The Hazards of DIY Pest Control

When looking for a pest control company, it is incredibly important to ensure that they are doing their best to use eco-friendly practices, not only for the safety of the people and pets living in your home but also for the environment. Consumer available pesticides can cause problems for our ecosystem and have been linked to the honey bee population dropping considerably. 

Pesticide exposure has been linked to over 3 million poisonings each year, according to the World Health Organization, and chronic exposure has been linked to health issues such as:

  • Birth Defects
  • Cancer
  • Blood Disorders
  • Etc.

Bad pest control practices often harm or kill everything that may be deemed as a pest without paying attention to beneficial creatures such as butterflies and hummingbirds. Lizards and small mammals (think dogs and cats) are also at risk.
