Celebrating Earth Day Wearing Green and Yellow

There are more than 60 million “green” consumers in the United States who prefer and are willing to pay a premium for products and services that respect the environment and leave a smaller footprint.

Earth Day was established in 1970 to create public awareness for the environment and public health, and this year marks the 43rd anniversary. Earth Day is meant to inspire the public to take pride in and better care of the environment, and Western Exterminator Company and I are 110% behind that thought.

Western Exterminator is proud to be able to say we walk the walk when it comes to our commitment to providing environmentally responsible pest management services to consumers across California, Arizona and Nevada, and are one of only a handful of pest control firms throughout the U.S. with all of the following certifications:

  • GreenPro. The world’s largest and most credible green certification program for pest management professionals, GreenPro certification means that pest control companies must comply with a multitude of qualifications to ensure that you receive a safe and effective service each and every time. As you can see we have gone green in a big way and are proud of it!
  • EcoWise. An independent, third-party certification program that distinguishes knowledgeable, leading-edge licensed pest management professionals who practice prevention-based pest control. EcoWise Certified practitioners employ common sense techniques to control pests with a focus on minimizing the need to use pesticides.
  • Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies which include improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts, including pest management. Western has also earned LEED Certification.
  • United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Organic Certification. This is a labeling term that indicates that the food or other agricultural product has been produced through approved methods that integrate cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity.

We are quite proud that Western has earned these distinctions and can offer all of these services. To insure compliance with these standards, our service technicians receive extensive training in the latest environmentally sensitive treatment techniques and we only use products that pose the least risk to your employees, customers and the environment.

In addition, we have developed our own reduced impact residential program, W.E.Care™ that focuses primarily on botanical oils and exclusion, using pesticides only when absolutely necessary and applied only exactly where needed.  All of Western’s residential customers receive W.E.Care™ service.

If you are looking for environmentally-responsible solutions to termite, rodent, bird or other pest control, the team at Western Exterminator can help. Send me an e-mail at [email protected] and I’ll be sure to get back to you right away.

Until next time, thanks for making Western Exterminator Company “The Final Word in Pest Control®”

Have a pest free day!
