Facilities have embraced green cleaning with open arms, so it should come as no surprise that commercial clients now request green pest control.

Chemical pesticides are no longer the only way to rid buildings of unwanted pests. Green Shield Certified standards require pest control companies to first employ non-chemical methods to control pest problems. If pesticides are deemed necessary, then only those chemicals that have been screened and approved by Green Shield Certified will be utilized. Thus, the process of eliminating pests uses the least amount of material, waste and has less of an impact to the environment.

To qualify for Green Shield Certification, pest control companies must undergo an extensive on-site evaluation by an integrated pest management professional. Green Shield Certification is also available for buildings and facilities where pest control standards are attained. Certification is available for single buildings, campuses or multiple facilities.
