What is Integrated Pest Management (IPM)?

IPM is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information regarding the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. Green City Pest Control focuses on using Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to everything that we do.  Specifically, we utilize knowledge of the pest behavior to modify the life cycle and eliminate unwanted pest activity, using natural products and low toxic applications.

What sets Green City Pest Control apart from the competition?

Our expertise! We are one of only a few companies that have a Board Certified Entomologist on Staff. Scott, the owner, understands and has extensively studied the behaviors of insects, bugs and rodents. When it comes to your specific pest issues, Green City Pest Control will evaluate all factors involved; weather, environmental influences, pest behaviors and patterns, and will successfully eliminate your pest problem. Over 30 years of experience includes awareness of the latest pest control trends, breeding cycles and best practices for the Northwest, all key in solving your pest problems.

Whether treating bed bug infestations or restoring rat infested crawl spaces, our programs are developed to be pro-active and preventative. Bed Bug Treatment is just one of our specialties. We have developed a low chemical treatment that has been very successful and we use it weekly in many large senior housing facilities. We have even treated a police vehicle!

We have had success at local Zoos to treat different pest infestations. We can handle a wide variety of locations and unique environments which require specialized and delicately managed programs.

Green City Pest Control was an early adapter and innovator in treating certain pest problems monthly. This actually reduces the use of harsh chemicals and allows us to adhere to healthier and ‘greener’ programs. More frequent services are sometimes necessary to stay on top of some pest problems and reduces the opportunity for re-infestation. (With 4 children, 2 cats, 3 hamsters and a myriad of other ‘friends’ entering our home, we understand how a healthier family and pet friendly environment is so important.)
