A new year, a new (green) leaf
With Integrated Pest Management (IPM), natural pest elimination is possible AND effective!
With unfettered access to information, whether via social media, news sites or blogs about the health of our environment and our homes, today’s consumer is more savvy than ever. We have choices, whether we’re shopping for food, health care, clothing or yes, even for pest control solutions.
But why do we need to have any data at all about pest control solutions? Can’t we just keep doing what’s been accepted for decades?
Absolutely not, according to RED COAT PEST SOLUTIONS CEO Ashley Marratt, and for good reason. Her own personal story related to chemical exposure has driven her passion for providing sustainable, environmentally-friendly pest control solutions (read her personal account on the company website). “Any solution we offer is one I do use in my own home,” said Ashley.
The accepted norm, even the standard in the pest control industry, for decades has been broadcast chemical pesticide treatments, a sort of spray-everything-and-call-it-a-day mentality. While that approach may have resulted in bug-free homes for a while, it has also caused two long-term problems. First, pests have evolved to be even more resistant to those harsh chemicals. Second, and most troubling, is that humans, our beloved pets, and nature have suffered chronic illnesses and even death that may have been linked to contamination and these dangerous scatter-shot practices.
RED COAT PEST SOLUTIONS has emerged as a leading Georgia pest control company, primarily because they have addressed these significant concerns. Having earned a reputation as a GREEN pest control company, the professionals at RED COAT PEST SOLUTIONS believe in prevention first, and in a least-invasive, most-effective approach to ridding your home or business from cockroaches, termites, mosquitoes, ants, and even bed bugs.
RED COAT PEST SOLUTIONS first earned its reputation as an environmentally responsible company by treating bed bugs in an unconventional but highly effective manner. By using heat to kill the fast-reproducing parasites, RED COAT kills them wherever they live in a space, not just where they’re spotted (hint: bed bugs don’t live in bedding alone!). Even more fascinating is how RED COAT finds bed bugs. By using highly-trained dogs to alert to the presence of bedbugs, the company’s technicians can identify and eliminate a bed bug infestation without the use of any chemicals (you can meet these canine detectives on the company website!).
That expertise and efficiency, combined with the company’s out-of-the-box thinking, have over the years spread to prevention and treatment of some of Georgia’s most infamous pests: roaches, ants, mosquitoes and termites.
Mosquitoes, like bed bugs, are parasites who bite because they need blood to reproduce. By using a preventative treatment just before mosquitoes first emerge, homeowners get a much-needed jump on mosquito season in Georgia by hindering their reproduction. Also of widespread interest and importance, by using this 100% natural application, bees and other pollinators are spared the widespread killing that has plagued environmentalists and gardeners ever since conventional mosquito prevention emerged years ago.
Another pest that no Georgia homeowner wants invading her home is the termite. Since there are different types of termites, a thorough knowledge of this highly invasive and damaging pest is critical. Did you know it’s very likely that in Georgia, there is at least one colony of termites in your yard now? To protect your home from this invader, the RED COAT technician will get to work by applying bait that turns the termite’s own natural behavior against the entire colony. As in mosquito prevention, however, eco-friendly IPM is always the best solution. Prevent the problem before it ever occurs!
Of course, there are cases in which the termite infestation is already so far advanced that the measures used to resolve it must also be more advanced. But according to Ashley, the least invasive and most impactful measures should always be used first.
The unprecedented age of information in which we live today has armed homeowners and business owners with knowledge. A keen interest in the health of our families and our pets has given rise to the powerful desire to protect our loved ones in the one place where they should know they are sustainable – the home. RED COAT PEST SOLUTIONS has set the bar for excellence in Georgia using eco-friendly pest control. Let us help you protect your home and family from unwanted, destructive, and disease-spreading nuisances, all with the peace of mind that your family deserves.
