Benefits of Green Pest Control

Well, we’re back on the property and I wanted to quickly share with you an example of one of the benefits of our planet-friendly pest control methods.

Today is August 26, and this house has already had two perimeter treatments, two tick treatments, and it’s already had two what we call bee-friendly barrier treatments on the shrubbery. Right here in front of me is a milkweed garden and on it is one of the most favorite insects that this client tries to propagate, which is the monarch butterfly.

There are dozens and dozens of very healthy monarch butterfly caterpillars here. It’s actually very exciting to come back and check all this out and see how healthy this environment is. This client also has lots of other butterflies in many gardens around the home, but their very favorite one is the monarch butterfly.

You know, it is so satisfying to come back to the property and see a healthy population of monarch caterpillars like this, you know, right in a transition zone where we do treatments. Here in a little bit we’re going to see more monarch butterflies. Very, very exciting. I hope you guys have a great rest of your summer. Take care and I’ll see you in the fall.

I've been using Planet Friendly for almost two years now and would highly recommend them. Great customer service and their products are very effective and affordable.

Questions on Green Pest Control


What product do you use?

We use various products depending on the need at hand.  Our go-to exterior product has the same active ingredient that many common tick and flea products use for dogs and cats.  Insects have no idea the product is there,  they travel through it and they’re done.

It goes on as a liquid. We use calibrated equipment and apply it specifically where we want it to go. We apply it 12 inches up and out from the foundation, around first floor windows and door stoops.  Once dry you won’t know that it is there.


Is your product people and pet safe?



How often do I need a pest control treatment?

Three times a year.  Over the decades we have found that a Spring, Summer and Fall application of product typically maintains the home bug-free all year.  There are occasions where a specific issue will arise which may require additional treatment of some kind. We handle those on a case by case basis.


What is the cost?

The current perimeter treatment price is $135 per treatment.


What insects does the treatment work for?

Any insect that comes into contact with the product. This treatment focuses on crawling insects primarily.  The perimeter treatment will also cover wasp nests that are attached to the house or deck.


I just had my treatment and I still see wasps around my deck?

Keep in mind this treatment is a perimeter treatment that is applied around the base of the home. An insect must touch the product to be eliminated.  If you continue to wasps please call the office, you may have a nest nearby that needs treatment.
