Manassas, VA (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
Triple S Services, the foremost pest management and extermination firm in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area, is always happy to celebrate and promote environmental awareness, such as the annual Earth Day.
Such holidays are a great way to involve the young and old alike in conversations about preserving the environment and making better use of our resources, but it’s important to remember those tenets on the other 364 days of the year.
At Triple S, Dr. Timothy H. Dickens, our resident etymologist, works tirelessly throughout the year to develop pest management routines and practices using the latest research and technology developments.
Dr. Dickens, a former Navy etymologist who also developed training regimens for the Environmental Protection Agency, now works full time with Triple S to improve quality assurance for our customers, who range from homeowners to hospitals to government agencies.
Dr. Dickens expands on the philosophy of his work: “The management philosophy we subscribe to is known as “Integrated Pest Management.” In practice, this means that we’re constantly looking for ways to deter or remove pests with targeted methods that reduce impact on the environment and risk to other organisms. This method is proactive but not overly so; instead of indiscriminate use of pesticides on a quarterly basis, for instance, we monitor properties carefully and address issues on a case by case basis.”
He points to the example of the termite control system Sentricon, which is the only pest control method to receive the Presidential Award for “green chemicals”, and is so safe it doesn’t even require a warning label.
Previous termite control methods required an annual dousing of the earth around and near the home with pesticides. The Sentricon method is to plant one or more bait stations around the property, which contain bait stations laced with a chemical that doesn’t kill termites-- it merely prevents them from molting and reaching the next stage of their life cycle. The termite colony then simply dies out because its members never grow the wings needed to colonize new territory.
These ingenious methods are cutting edge, and require the oversight of someone who is equally up-to-date and up to the task of implementing these new procedures. Triple S prides itself on this forward-thinking and earth-friendly philosophy. They’re protecting the environment, and your home, every day of the year.
