The Basics of Organic Pest Control

Organic pest control is all the rage these days. Spartanburg pest control companies are beginning to utilize organic pest control methods to help prevent pests while also respecting the environment that we must constantly work to protect.

Thompson Brothers Exterminating has a few tips that can allow you to reduce the number of pests that are making their way into your home through some do it yourself environmental pest control methods.

Break the Reproductive Cycle of Pests
Farmers are quite familiar with this method of pest control, but you can use it at home in your garden as well. In your vegetable garden be sure to move your plots around a bit each year to help break the reproductive cycle of many pests that can wreak havoc on your vegetables.

Encourage Beneficial Insects
There are certain insects that are beneficial for getting rid of pests that can cause significant problems in your garden and even with other exterior plants. Ladybugs, parasitic wasps and green lacewings are a few insects that feed on some of the pests that can cause problems in your garden or yard. Planting certain plants like cilantro, parsley, fennel and Queen Anne’s Lace can help to attract the good insects that will feed on the insects that are merely causing issues in your yard.

Using Organic Foliar Sprays
Insects are a bit like humans in that they don’t like things that taste bad. Using organic foliar sprays on your plants can cause pests to leave for greener pastures where the plants just taste better!

What About Pest Control Services Inside My Home?
When it comes to interior pest control, it is often better to call in a professional pest control company rather than trying to take care of the problem yourself. Many different types of pests can reproduce quickly and become a huge problem in just a matter of days. For pests inside your home it’s best to call a Spartanburg pest control company that is focused on providing environmentally friendly pest control.

Sharon P, Waterproofing & Repair

We had extensive water intrusion that our inspector did not see. Thompson Brothers had to engage in grading, extensive digging, reinstallation of French drains, and install a new drainage field. The work was excellent. All personnel is polite, on time, and very professional. Highly recommend.
