The responsible choice

Effective environmentally responsible pest control embraces Integrated Pest Management (IPM), an approach that is more sophisticated and scientific than that of traditional exterminators. At the core of IPM is pest prevention, client education and regular inspections. By identifying and eliminating conducive conditions which can attract pests before they arrive, you truly are getting the most natural pest control available!

If pest activity is already present, Western Exterminator’s knowledgeable and friendly technicians will tailor a pest removal plan to suit your needs. Methods, products and frequency programs all depend on factors such as the pest type, degree of infestation and surrounding environment. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to smarter, more responsible pest control. If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.  

An Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach also requires careful selection of pest control products when their use is necessary. Whereas traditional exterminators often apply cheap, highly-toxic pesticides in abundance, we opt to select the best reduced toxicity products available on the market for effective pest elimination.  

While our carefully selected product line includes some organic and natural-based pest control products, we also utilize a variety of cutting edge, target-specific products that are scientifically engineered to be more effective, biodegradable and, in some cases, even less toxic than their natural counterparts. In addition, our application methods target pest areas such as feeding and nesting areas, as well as entry points. This crack-and-crevice approach eliminates the need for broadcast application, in turn reducing the amount of product used and your exposure to it.
