Pests can quickly turn a peaceful home into a nightmare, posing significant risks to both property and health. At Stratton Pest Control, we understand the importance of eradicating pests effectively and humanely while prioritising the safety of your loved ones and the environment. In this blog, we explain the safety protocols and practices we have in place to safeguard your home and well-being.
Eco-friendly Pest Control Solutions
At Stratton Pest Control, we have embraced a proactive approach to pest management that is environmentally responsible. Our experts are well-versed in the use of eco-friendly pest control solutions, which are low in toxicity and pose minimal risk to humans and pets. We prioritise the use of natural and organic products to target pests effectively while minimising any potential harm to the ecosystem.
Qualified and Trained Technicians
Our team consists of highly qualified and extensively trained pest control technicians. Each member of our staff is required to complete comprehensive training in the latest industry standards and safety procedures. This ensures that they possess the knowledge and expertise needed to handle various pest control products and equipment safely. This also applies in the responsible disposal as we are committed to ensuring safety extends beyond the treatment process. We take great care in the proper disposal of any pest control products and materials.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Safety is a top priority at Stratton Pest Control, and we ensure that our technicians are equipped with appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) during all pest control procedures. This includes gloves, masks, safety goggles, and specialised clothing to prevent any direct contact with potentially hazardous substances.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
The strategy we use is Integrated Pest Management (IPM), which basically focuses on long-term prevention and eco-friendly solutions. By understanding the biology and behaviour of pests, we can target their vulnerabilities and minimise the need for chemical treatments. IPM emphasises the use of non-chemical methods, such as sealing entry points and removing attractants, which further ensures the safety of your household. This also means we can treat the pests as humanely as possible.
Pre-service Inspections, Consultations, Family and Pet Safety Guidelines
Before any pest control treatment, our technicians conduct thorough inspections to assess the extent of the infestation and identify potential risks. We provide detailed consultations, educating homeowners about the proposed treatment plan as well as safety precautions in place. Our transparent approach allows clients to make informed decisions and address any concerns they may have regarding safety. Upon completion of the pest control procedure, our technicians provide detailed safety guidelines to homeowners. These guidelines inform clients about how to protect their families and pets during and after the treatment. Following these instructions ensures the safety and well-being of all occupants, including pets of the treated property.
At Stratton Pest Control, we take safety seriously, and our practices reflect our dedication to protecting your home and loved ones. With eco-friendly solutions, well-trained technicians, PPE and a focus on Integrated Pest Management, we prioritise the health and well-being of our clients, their families, and the environment. Choosing Stratton Pest Control means not only effective pest management but also a commitment to safety and sustainability.
