Castleton, NY (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Catseye Pest Control is pleased to announce today it has joined the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP), a voluntary program that forms partnerships with pesticide users to reduce the potential health and environmental risks associated with pesticides.
Kicking off the start of the spring season with this new membership, Catseye Pest Control has pledged that environmental stewardship is a critical part of its integrated pest management (IPM) approach, which is an effective and environmentally sensitive method to solving pest issues. IPM relies on a combination of common-sense practices including prevention techniques, localized pinpointing and decontaminating of infested areas, as opposed to the widespread chemical tactics traditionally used.
“Pest management is moving toward more intensive inspections, which minimize the need for chemicals and instead eliminate the very conditions that produced pest problems in the first place,” said Luis Pabon, technical director at Catesye Pest Control. “As a proud member of EPA’s PESP, which allows us to demonstrate our commitment to protecting our environment, we will continue promoting greener initiatives throughout our industry.”
The news comes just as the company’s pest technicians are gearing up for the busiest seasons of the year. While summer is the peak time for pest activity, home and business owners are often caught off guard by pest issues not addressed quickly enough as activity begins to rise during spring. With warmer temperatures comes the beginning of a tremendous breeding period for some of home and businesses’ most problematic pests, including Carpenter ants, termites and bees.
As pest activity will not slow again until fall, it is critical that signs of infestation are investigated immediately and any discovered pest issues are handled promptly. If you think you have an issue requiring pest management, contact Catseye Pest Control at http://www.catseyepest.com.
