10 Reasons You Should Go Green for Your Pest Control Solution

No one likes the idea of living around a bunch of potentially harmful chemicals. So, it makes a lot of sense that if you needed help controlling a household pest infestation, you’d want to go with an eco-friendly solution. Whether you try to address your problem yourself or hire a professional, green pest control should be your first option.

Your Children

If you have small children in your home, you don’t want to surround them with potentially toxic chemicals. Their smaller bodies are more susceptible to harmful substances. Plus, their immune systems are not fully formed yet.

Your Pets

It can be difficult to know exactly how some chemicals affect our pets, but it’s safe to say that you don’t want to take any chances. Because they roam close to the ground, pets may take in more of any pesticide you are applying.


Going with a green pest control solution may be less costly than heavier, engineered chemicals. You can ask the pest control professionals at Planet Orange about potential cost savings.


Depending how often you have to treat your home with the pesticides, you want each application to be as nontoxic as possible.

Easy to Get

Trying solutions such as peppermint, borax, or vinegar to address specific pests may mean that you have immediate access to the material, especially if it is something you have in your cupboards.

Personal Health

There is not a great deal known about the long-term effects of certain chemicals on the human body. Plus, if you are prone to asthma or allergic reactions, going green for pest control is the better option.


Of course, it makes sense to avoid adding potentially harmful chemicals and their fumes to the air. Greenhouse effects and the Ozone layer might be affected by what you use.


Botanical pest solutions might be right at hand, so you can begin battling bugs as quickly as you can grab an item from the pantry.

Long-Term Health

If you need to have yearly, semi-annual or monthly application of pesticides in your home to address a recurring problem, you want products that are not harsh or expected to have any long-term effects on your health or the health of your family and pets.


Natural solutions tend to have a great fragrance, which is an additional benefit to treating your home. Not only can it be pest free, it may smell great!
