Within the Queen Creek town charter, there is a commitment to environmentally friendly practices. We are striving to lessen our footprint with a green building policy, enhance energy efficiency, reduce generational waste, and lessen the use of pesticides. Pro Active Pest Control is proud to be a part of the Queen Creek community.

Do You Really Need To Use All Those Chemicals?

The use of chemicals in our homes has become commonplace and accepted over the years. Most people do not even question this usage. In fact, 75% of American households have some sort of over-the-counter pesticide in their cabinets. Most pest control companies use highly caustic chemicals that are made with one objective: to kill. That is what the ‘-cide’ means in pesticides. Having these deadly chemicals in your home near your family is kind of scary. Pro Active Pest Control is committed to a safer way, using eco-friendly solutions. The definition of ‘natural pesticides’ is a pest control product that is made strictly from nature with little to no alteration.

Dangers Of Chemical Pesticides

Being exposed to indoor pesticides can cause immediate irritation to your eyes, nose, and throat. Prolonged or repeated exposure may result in damage to the central nervous system and kidneys and an increased risk of cancer. If you have had prolonged exposure, your symptoms may include:

  • Headache.
  • Dizziness.
  • Muscular weakness.
  • Nausea.

Because children's internal organs are still developing, they are at greater risk than adults. You should also consider your family pets and watch closely for any reactions.

Eco Friendly Is The Way To Go

Are you ready to “go green?” The request for this service has increased dramatically in recent years as the population’s awareness of the dangers of chemicals has increased. Not only do the people of Queen Creek want safer homes for themselves, but also for their communities.
We use IPM (Integrated Pest Management), which is basically a fancy way to say that we use chemicals as a last resort. For example:

  • If we can trap and remove rodents from the property rather than poison pellets.
  • If we can clean the kitchen and put all food in air-tight bins that roaches cannot get into.
  • If we can vacuum the wasps and remove the nest.

These are back to basics, old-school methods that are combined with natural pesticides to remove your pest problems. These methods tend to take repeated applications and are not as rapid as the dangerous chemicals, but this is the trade-off for staying healthy.

  • Closing up all potential points of entry for pests.
  • Incorporating plants that will naturally deter pests from your yard.
  • Introducing ‘friendlies’ to your yard that are natural predators to the pests, such as chickens.
