Environmentally Friendly Pest Control: Our Dedication to Environmental Protection

For too long, our industry has had a reputation for using harsh chemicals and pesticides. However, the tides have been changing for pest control in recent years, and more and more companies are seeing the value of environmentally friendly pest control. Our team is no exception—we’ve always sought better ways to serve our clients. Since the beginning of Anti-Pesto’s founding, our mission has been to serve our community and the Tampa Bay area. To fulfill our mission, we are dedicated to environmental protection through our pest control service. Today, we’ll explain our commitment to safe, bay-friendly pest control.


Why Is Environmentally Friendly Pest Control Important?

When you think of pest control, your first thought is likely an exterminator coming to get rid of a pest problem in a home or business. At first glance, environmentally friendly seems like the last word you’d associate with pest control—yet pest control and the protection of the environment are intrinsically tied. 


Not only are many of the pests we help control invasive to the local ecosystem, but by being conscious of our environmental impact, we protect you, your family, your pets, our beautiful bay area, and local beneficial species such as bees and butterflies. Our commitment to pest control is a commitment to protect our clients and the environment while still providing pest-free spaces.


We Minimize Our Impact

Some pest control companies will come into a home and immediately address the situation with harsh chemicals and pesticides with little regard to the impact they may have on the surrounding environment. At Anti-Pesto, we take a different approach. While some situations may require pesticides, we can minimize our impact by using ones that provide the most reduced harm. Our team is always on the lookout for the latest and the best pest solutions for both environmental protection and effectiveness. 


What Is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is “an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices.” Not every pest situation requires the use of pesticides.


IPM also encourages prevention—the best way to protect your home from pests is by keeping them from entering your home in the first place. Some examples of IPM prevention may look like: 


  • Sealing cracks in your walls, entryways, and window screens
  • Properly securing food and trash
  • Removing wood debris and sitting water from your yard
  • Regularly cleaning your house, especially dark or moist areas such as cabinets or the bathroom 


By utilizing IPM methods—both as homeowners and pest control technicians—we can protect the environment while removing pests through safe pest control. 


How We Utilize IPM for Bay-Friendly Pest Control

We want to protect our beautiful area of Tampa Bay as much as we can. That’s why we have adopted IPM methods to protect the bay’s local environment. Our approach to IPM pest control has three steps: 


  • Inspection: We inspect a home or business to determine what pest (or pests) we’re facing, assess any damage, identify potential causes (such as entryways), and figure out the size of the infestation. 
  • Identification: Different pests require different treatments. After our inspection, we’ll identify the pests we discovered so that we can begin to formulate a plan of action. 
  • Treatment: Knowing the size, the cause, and the pest, we’ll make a game plan for treatment. Depending on the severity, we’ll determine if we need stronger solutions or if minimal pesticides are necessary. 


We prioritize minimally risky yet highly effective solutions—that way, even if we do need to use pesticides, we know we’re reducing the risk to the environment as much as possible. After treatment, we’ll monitor the situation and provide prevention strategies to help the treatment remain effective. 


We Keep You and the Environment Safe from Pests

When you have a pest issue in your home or business, there’s no need to sacrifice your values for the sake of living pest-free.
