Natural Choice Program
Sustainable Pest Management - Working with nature, not against it.
When making decisions regarding pest control, facility managers face the pressures of government regulations and public perceptions of pesticide usage. Addressing these concerns Eden Advanced Pest Technologies, a local pest management company, became the leader in implementing Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs in the Northwest.
IPM pinpoints the source of a problem and then determines the low risk, effective tactics. Eden's control strategies often include physical exclusion of the pest, removal of harborage sites, habitat modification, and monitoring. When chemical treatments are required, products with the least toxicity are selected and treatments are directed with attention to remote locations and seasonal timing to reduce unnecessary pesticide usage.
In contrast, traditional pest control companies treat pest problems with the quickest and least involved methods such as generalized chemical spraying. As a result, the conducive conditions remain the same and the pests keep coming back to re-infest. To break this cycle, an IPM program's modifications reduce pest incentives to infest assuring a healthy, pest free environment.
After several years of providing a successful IPM program Eden is taking their resources to the next level with an even more sustainable approach to pest management with the Natural Choice Program. This program focuses on integrating thorough inspections with non-chemical products with an emphasis on pest exclusion and access denial. Eden's program keeps their clients involved by educating the importance of sanitization and preventing conducive conditions. To ensure efficient results Eden is dedicated to knowledge and research on the behavior and biology of pests, modern treatment tactics, and current environmental issues. Eden technicians and inspectors experience extensive training and education. When product application is unavoidable Eden results to Eco Exempt products that contain organic ingredients and natural insecticides. These products are Considered Minimum Risk by the EPA and do not require federal registration The vision of Eden's sustainable Natural Choice program is to offer the most efficient, long-term control while using the lowest-risk methods, working with nature, not against it. With this program continually being put into place, Eden has been rewarded with the Green Shield Certification, which is a certification for companies and services who solve the underlying cause of the pest problems and providing lasting pest control.
