Alternatives to Toxic Pesticides
I've had 22+ years of experience in the professional pest control business, I have yet to encounter an insect pest that cannot be effectively eliminated/controlled with safe, poison/odor free products and methods. In fact, our poison free products and systems actually work much better and last much longer than the toxic pesticides and chemicals that have literally ravaged human and environmental health. Whether it's ants, roaches, termites, fleas, ticks, lawn pests, mosquitoes or other flying insects out for a free blood meal, (i.e. sand flies, no-see-ums, & black flies), we have the poison free solution and will gladly share our extensive knowledge

Please submit your questions to this site on the Contact page or directly to Jerry Goodman, via his e mail. I will post the questions and answers here, so we can all benefit, unless you specify otherwise.
Question 1. I live near a city that has no organic pest control available. Is there any way I could make safe pest control products or service for my health food store available? The management says that the health department requires them to use a licensed pest control operator.
Answer: I never heard of a health dept. requirement that a professional PCO needs to treat a health store. You could effectively do it yourself with a number of different poison free products and you will not have any pests, so the health dept. could not write you a violation.
Question 2. Can you evaluate the effectiveness of the various non-toxic methods for termite control? Especially the microwave method and heat method?
Answer: We could supply you with safe, effective products for whatever problems you may have. I have heard of the microwave technique for drywood termites, but I do not know much about it. As far as Heat, (Thermal Pest Eradication), I know quite a bit, as I introduced this process to South Florida in 1990. Heat can very very effective if done properly and thoroughly and I'm sure the Heat system, (ours is called"Heatwave TPE"), is more effective than the microwave, because it heats entire rooms, thereby preventing the possible escape of the termites to cooler areas where they can survive. I would also highly recommend sodium borate for all accessible, bare surfaced wood, as sodium borate is the only product and system that will afford long term if not permanent protection from new termites. We treat homes under construction, where we are able to coat every stick of wood and we offer lifetime warranties against termites.
