    Very professional, courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and pandemic conscientious! Easy process. Quick to get an appointment so no delay. Prompt. Arrived well ahead of scheduled time. Uniform and name tag with company label truck. Masked, gloves, and shoe covers. Reassuring they are just a phone call and will come back for any sign or worry of further pest activity. Price was comparable to competition but I had read more positive reviews about GPS. Reviews were true. Glad I chose Green Pest Solutions! Excellent first service experience overall. Thank you GPS.

    Green Pest Solutions
    It went very well. The young man from GreenPest was very straightforward. He looked closely at the sawdust and immediately told us that it is nothing to worry about. We had thought it might be termites but he said that the sawdust was from the original home construction and it was simply dislodged by ants traveling along the basement walls so that the sawdust fell on the walls and floor. We were impressed with the honesty of this Green Pest rep. He could have sought to sell us an unnecessary termite prevention program but he did not. So we are inclined to make Green Pest our go to firm for future questions that we have.

Pest Control in Philly

Throughout history, pests have been one of the most dangerous threats to Philadelphia. In the beginning they threatened agriculture. Faced with the possibility of losing a harvest, farmers are obligated to combat the problem.

While pesticides are the most common way to protect crops today, their side effects can be dangerous to both the environment and consumers. These dangers are magnified in a city like modern Philly. Fortunately, there are some natural alternatives that can be effective at reducing Philadelphia pest populations.

Here are some common organic pest control techniques. If these fail consider hiring a Philadelphia pest control company that uses natural techniques.

Oil Sprays

Oil sprays are designed to suffocate pests, rather than poison them. In order for them to work, the pests must be directly sprayed.

There are different types of oil sprays for different uses. Dormant oils are used to kill eggs and spores that may be found on bare branches during dormant seasons. For growing plants, lighter oils are used, since they are less damaging to plants. Here are more oils for pest control ideas.

Sticky Traps

Sticky traps are made of a rigid, colored material coated with a sticky substance. Bugs are attracted to the color and trapped when they're unable to free themselves from the sticky material. The traps are most effective when they're hung every 3 to 5 feet (at plant height) and will lose their effectiveness if they're not kept clean.

While sticky traps are available in stores, it’s also possible to make them from scratch. Different colors attract different pests, so you'll need to know what type of pest you're trying to get rid of, if you plan to make your own traps.

Pheromone Traps

Insects emit powerful scents called pheromones to attract the opposite sex. Scientists have been able to duplicate many of them for use in bait traps.

The downside of pheromone traps is that they attract primarily males, which makes them significantly less effective than sticky traps. However, they are useful as a form of early detection to let you which types of pests are moving in. Armed with this knowledge, you can choose a strategy based on which pests you expect to face.

Philly Pest Control Services

Although some pesticide use is still necessary on large farms, organic pest control techniques make it possible to minimize their use in our cities. This helps ensure that the ecosystem's natural balance is maintained. But if these fail consider a Philadelphia pest control company - research and find the best for free with Angie's List.
