In order to manage and maintain a delicate environmental balance, we apply only the safest, most effective products available. We take extreme care in the purpose for the use of and the applications of ALL pesticides, including insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Our professional approach and expertise in the use of pesticides has evolved with more than 57 years of experience in the outdoor pest control business.
We understand that BEE POLLINATION is a very critical process in the insect world. We are very aware of the importance of their job and DO NOT WANT TO DISRUPT them in their valuable purpose. As with bees we DO NOT WANT TO DISTURB other beneficial insects as well.
Our insect control products are carefully selected and mixed ONLY to control a variety of specifically targeted pest insects.
We NEVER HAVE and NEVER WILL use Neonicotinoid insecticides.
Contributing factors that lead to the decline of a select variety of bees in the U.S. and throughout the world include but are not limited to: colony management, multiple viruses, bacteria, poor nutrition, genetics, habitat loss and one of the “single most” culprits the parasitic mite vorroa destructor, as well as some pesticides.
Three high-profile studies have SUGGESTED that the Noenicotinoid class of insecticides, ( developed in the 1970″s, widely used starting in the 1990s ), MAY BE A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR in the mysterious condition called colony collapse disorder decimating honey bee colonies and leading to a serious decline in U.S. bee populations. Bees are essential to the life cycle of many food crops. These pesticides are used in a variety of agricultural applications mainly used as a seed treatment for field crops. A two year partial ban on the use of some neonicotiods is in place in parts of Europe, France, Germany, Italy and Slovenia but it is voluntary here in the U.S. at this time.
