Homes

Homes are places where people should feel safe and relaxed. When pests move in, they disrupt that sense of security and may create unhealthy living conditions. Since pesticides are less effective for many kinds of home pests (bed bugs, for example), and since they often increase the health risks associated with an infestation, it’s important to have access to healthier pest control options. Here you’ll find information on IPM, non-chemical management techniques, and other topics related to healthy housing.
