Green Earth – Mother Earth – Green Pest Control

Interesting discussion on one of Raid’s newer pest control products. CLICK HERE

Its all in how you name it right?  If you say its Eco-Earth or Ecological Bug Control, then it has to be environmentally friendly right?  Get the facts.  Just because a name contains the word Eco in it does not mean that it is Eco. Sure it sounds good, but its just like all of your sugar cereals claiming to be part of a complete breakfast. Fortified with vitamins doesn’t make it healthy.  Better yet there are companies whose names today would be illegal, but they were grandfathered in so they are allowed to use terms like “Organic” in their names. Unfortunately most people don’t know how to determine what product are truly Eco Friendly.  Or better yet, what products are the least toxic. 

I was shocked to hear how many “Green Pest Control” companies are still using Diatomceous Earth.  Pest Control operators should understand that this product may be organic and natural but the human body cannot metabolize it.  Further studies indicate how exposure to this “organic” pest product can cause serious chronic conditions.

So above asking if a pest product or service is “Green” is asking how toxic is the product.  The lower the LD-50 the better.  I personally would never use a product in a customer’s home that I wouldn’t use in my own home.  All of the products Bulwark uses are less toxic then toothpaste.  And our trained professionals know how and where to place the products according to the EPA label so that you and your family are not at any increased risks. 

You can count on Bulwark for all your Family Friendly Pest Control Solutions.

What is Green Pest Control?

What is green pest control?  Well after a long week of “Green Washing” many people are on a green rampage.  The green growth reaches as far as the pest control companies.  Excited and ready to move forward these greenies in the green pest control field get all set up for the Green Pest Management Conference in Dallas TX.  And of course, what’s the first question out of the their mouths, “How do I go Green?”.  But wait, shouldn’t we define what green is?  Apparently not.  There is no regulations on “Green” and there is no way to define it. So you can call it what you want.  “You have to decide what’s green to you.” commented one speaker.

So its similar to “Purified Water”.  You can take water from your tap and stick a “Purified Water” label on it and sell it as “purified water.”  There is no regulation on how pure purified water has to be. None.

If your a pest control company then you could be thinking… “So I can take what I am doing now and call it green?”

Yes.  You can call your pest control Green.  Call it whatever color you want since its not regulated. You can call it pink, orange, white, or black. Pest Control can be any shade.  In fact, it doesn’t seem like the “green leaders” are doing much more then Bulwark already does. So you can call Bulwark green.  Or greener then green.  But if it doesn’t mean anything then why?

Why don’t we just forget the whole semantics and go with what’s real.  Improvement.  Whatever shade of green you paint Bulwark doesn’t matter to us.  What matters is that we are getting greener. What matters even more to Bulwark is that the customer is getting more of what they want.  They can call it green.  They can call it clean.  They can call it “worry free pest control”.  We just want them to sleep sound knowing that Bulwark is taking care of it and that we have their best interests in mind.

And how do we continue to improve?  Well we attended the Green Pest Management Conference didn’t we?  We were one of the first to use EcoSmart products were we not?  Improvement is the Bulwark way.

So you define green pest control, What’s Green Pest Control to YOU?- Is it Natural Pest Products?  Is it organic pest control products? paperless?  efficiency? lower risk products? low impact?
