What Makes Planet Friendly Pest Control Unique - 6 Reasons

Hi, Gene here. I have had many requests to do this video. Today is a gorgeous spring day. I’d like to invite you to spend a few minutes with me so we can find out what makes Planet Friendly Pest Control so unique.

For generations, my family has enjoyed this magical place called the Chesapeake Bay and its surrounding ecosystems. And now, I have the pleasure of teaching my grandchildren about this wonderful gift of nature. Our entire service area exists within the Chesapeake Bay estuary system. Products that pest control companies spray around your home can have an impact on this natural treasure. Because of our unique ecosystem, we have many creatures that other areas do not. For example, we have over 93 native species of amphibians and reptiles, over 550 species of bees and butterflies, and over 450 species of native birds. All of these creatures are sensitive to and affected by pesticides. We are very aware of this beautiful ecosystem we all share.

With every service treatment we perform, the technician also does what’s called an integrated pest management inspection and provides a written report when there’s issues or a potential problem. These reports help our clients understand what they can do to mechanically fix pest problems without having to use pest control products. The equipment used by a pest control technician to apply product has a huge impact on the environment. Equipment and product application methods which allow the technician to place a product exactly where they want it to go is critical in maintaining a healthy environment. I will link in the description below some of our other videos that go into more detail about how we conduct our treatments. Take some
time to check out these videos.

The goal of our company is to use the least amount of product to provide our clients with a bug-free home environment. Over the years, we have found that if we can do three exterior treatments a season, a spring, a summer, and a fall, it pretty much keeps a home bug-free all year.

A lot of our competitors will do four to six exterior treatments a season along with monthly interior treatments. That’s just a lot of pesticide.

We do not require our clients to sign an annual service agreement. We put the onus on ourselves to provide the highest-level service possible. Our philosophy is quality of service
keeps customers, not contracts.

Continuity of care is critical in helping maintain a bug-free home for each client. Every client is assigned to a specific technician. This is important because every property is unique and over time, the technician becomes aware of the unique issues with each client’s property. This is what enables us to provide the highest level of service. Continuity of care is critical.

A week before each service visit, a reminder is sent to the customer. Also, on the day of the service, the technician will send a text message letting the client know that they’re at the property, and when the technician finishes the treatment, they will send copies of the paperwork by email. Then, the customer can pay online, they can print the invoice, mail in a check, whatever is easier for them. It’s very simple.

This has been a quick description of what makes Planet Friendly Pest Control so unique. Thanks for watching and I’ll see you next time.

Our Planet Friendly Pest Control Philosophy

Before applying any treatment, we perform a comprehensive inspection. This allows us to point out areas conducive to insect infestation and suggest solutions. (Often, pest problem areas can be remedied without the use of insecticide products.) Based on our observations, we will prescribe a custom treatment for each individual home. Our goal is to use the least amount of pest management products in and around the home as possible to solve a problem.

This process allows us to significantly reduce the amount of pest control products applied.

Important questions for the residents of Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia

When you hire a pest control company ask yourself these questions. Am I having my problem solved with the smallest impact on my home’s environment or Am I being ‘sold’ a service to generate maximum revenue for the pest mangement company? There’s a difference. Read on to learn more.

Eco-Friendly Pest Control - Two Important Questions to Ask

There are two, very important questions to ask if you want environmentally conscious pest control. These questions are, “Am I having my problem solved with the smallest impact on my home’s environment?” and “Am I being ‘sold’ a service to generate maximum revenue for the pest control company?”. Here are the answers to those questions and why Planet Friendly Pest Control is THE best choice for residents in Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia.


The idea of creating a “sterile-environment ” around your home devoid of any insect life is a bad idea for your family, pets and the environment. It’s certainly not environmentally conscious pest control. Spraying your entire property because you see one wasp land on a deck rail to collect a droplet of morning dew is a bad idea. The reality is that most insects play some beneficial role within our world, but problems can arise when the human and pest worlds merge. A lot of the pest control products available just about everywhere can ravage the environment and leave behind nasty toxins. These chemicals continue producing toxic effects on the environment well after they’ve been dispersed, too. Smart, eco-friendly pest control is about finding a balance.


Planet Friendly Pest Control professionals understand these issues as well as the biology and ecology of our specific area. How and when pest control products are applied dramatically affects the outcome and subsequent environmental consequences. We have spent years defining for our clients what the minimum amount of treatment is needed to responsibly maintain a healthy, pest-free environment. We always investigate non-pesticide solutions. This distinguishes us from others who’s goal is to come out and treat your home as many times as possible. The majority of pests that cause issues in and around the home come from the outside. We have found that we can treat the exterior a few times each year and we rarely need to treat the interior of a structure. (Exceptions would include roaches and bed bugs).


We offer many types of eco-friendly pest control services. One of these is our low-impact perimeter protection plan. This gives you a bug-free home by keeping pests outside.  We also offer pest control services for rodents. Here, we provide a complete inspection of your property and set up stations to not only handle rodent problems but ticket problems too. Lastly, we are well experienced with termite treatment. Our thorough inspection will discover the root of the problem and take fast measures to protect your home from the devastating effects of termites.

So, what are you waiting for? Get started with eco-friendly pest control treatments today! Call us at 800-990-0335 if you live in Southern Maryland ( Anne Arundel, St. Mary’s, Calvert or Charles County) or Northern Virginia ( Alexandria, Arlington, Annandale, McLean and more ) and suspect a troubling pest problem. Thanks for watching, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments and press that like and subscribe button while you’re at it.

What do our customers think?

BEST I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED! Friendly, respectful, and prompt with great customer service! I ask for some urgent help with a wasp issue, they made time in their schedule to help me despite it not being a normal work day. I understand this is a big ask for a company to bring someone in on their day off, and I thank you very much for such prompt service. The pests continued to show up for a couple of days, it was due to a nest I didn't know existed. After I found a new nest in an out building, they were able to come back in less than 36 hours to treat the new found nest. Since, every morning I have found a dead bug on the porch. This company knows their stuff and their formula works great and continues to work! It is similar to the formula used for flea and tick medications for pets. So after it dries it is safe for your pets to be around too!


Moved into a new home and had pest issues inside and outside, Friendly Pest Control fixed the problem FAST and have kept the issue resolved for the last year. Their products are not noxious and nasty which is super important to us for our son and our dog, customer service is top notch and super friendly, can't say enough good things...

I highly recommend using Planet Friendly Pest Control. Making an appointment is seamless and the service technicians are punctual. I am very please with the overall services. The product works great. I am a customer who have dogs and have not seen any negative side effects from the products, I have been using this company now for two summers.

Chris B.

Planet Friendly Pest Control is one of the most informed pest control companies I’ve ever worked with. Working in the Association Management Industry I’ve come across several. I love Planet Friendly’s eco-friendly approach. They’re incredibly innovative, think outside the box and will help you find solutions to pest problems you thought you’d never be able to cure. Their prices are highly competitive. I strongly recommend this company.
