Green Pest Control

When it comes to pest control, I’m sure we all have a pretty similar image in our head: some shlubby guy in coveralls spraying noxious gas all over the interior of our once healthy homes. It’s not that hard to figure out why: ever since the industrial revolution introduced chemical pesticides, pest control has taken on a much darker and far more destructive role in our society.

Mass usage of chemical pesticides is one of the main drivers of ecological collapse all over the world, with many insect populations declining as much as 60% due to agricultural ‘advances’. The loss of bugs doesn’t just mean a couple less mosquitos every summer; the insects are essential in breaking down and recycling dead biomass and reintroducing it into the ecosystems they inhabit and providing food for the local birds, mammals and reptiles.

That’s not even mentioning the fact that we need insects to pollinate our food crops. Honey bees, the insect primarily responsible for providing pollination essential in growing our food, have experienced a precipitous decline since the 90’s, with thousands of hives experiencing a phenomenon known as colony collapse disorder, where the worker bees either die off or abandon their colonies due to pesticides messing with their ecology.

I’m sure you’re saying at this point, ‘Ok, we get it, but what can we do? I can’t just let this termite colony eat my house around my head and just wait for it to collapse!’ I understand that pest control is necessary, and people have been practicing it since the advent of agriculture using natural methods.

Natural is the key word there – we don’t need to resort to horrifying industrial poisons to control insect populations when nature has provided plenty of alternatives for us to take advantage of. The trick is finding the termite exterminators willing to put those alternatives into practice.

One company local to southern California who pride themselves on using natural pest control methods is Natural Science Exterminating. They use a number of different natural compounds known to drive off common pests and keep them away, all without contributing to a growing number of poisons accumulating in the food chain.

They also provide excellent service, which is certainly rare for their industry. Just take a look at what their clients have been testifying to online if you don’t believe us:

Hands down the best exterminating company! Julie took care of all our needs when we needed someone out to my property quickly! They were out within the hour. The service techs were super friendly and hard working too! A+ in my book. Highly recommend!!

You can’t beat Natural Science they are the best.. We have been customers for almost 20yrs. They go above and beyond with their expertise fantastic customer service. They arrive on time and always with a smile. I had Mike inspect my home yesterday, and he brought up other issues that he noticed that I should get fixed. Joey is who used to come, but I’ll take Mike and say. What a wonderful young man. Of course, you can’t get anything started without Julie. She’s a wonderful asset to the company. Keep up the good job, and I will continue for another 20 yrs. Great company…. Katherine and my girls…..

Pest control has been necessary for thousands of years, and doubtless it’ll be necessary for thousands more, but the way we go about it can either work with or against the natural order of things. If you’re experiencing issues with pests, you can contact Natural Science Exterminating for a free termite inspection in Orange County. What do you have to lose?
