With the current concern for a healthier life, there is no doubt you have heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” This of course is making reference to the fact the body needs good nutrition in order to produce a healthier body better equipped to fight off disease. Therefore, if you are healthy one may conclude that you have been careful about the kind of food you eat. This brings us to the current hot term – organic. It’s popping up just about everywhere today, from the food we eat to the materials used in our homes.
But what does it mean?
Simply put, it means that the foods we eat as well as the products we use are free from pesticides or manmade additives. More and more individuals are requesting organic pest management services (which to the untrained may seem rather odd). Some would automatically conclude that pesticides are joined at the hip with pest management, but this is not necessarily the case. For decades the pest management industry has been reducing its use of pesticides by adopting Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques in addressing pest issues. By adhering to the principles of IPM and making use of non-chemical approaches as well as applying organic materials when needed, we have been able to provide environmentally sound pest management.
These organic materials are derived from plants that have developed natural pesticides to protect themselves from insects that normally would feast off them. Technically still pesticide, the key factor is that they breakdown naturally into the environment.
If you desire a more natural approach to your pest issues please ask about our organic programs. Catseye Pest Control continues to be at the forefront of new technologies, allowing us to develop environmentally effective methods of addressing pest issues and to provide more options to protect your home and our environment.
