Terminix Launches EcoControl(SM) Program for Commercial Clients
Industry leader answers market demand with follow-up to Terminix SafeShield(TM) introduction.
Company officials note traditional pest control services in the commercial segment have long emphasized treatments using pesticides as the primary method for dealing with infestations, and not the elimination of conducive conditions. In contrast, pest prevention is a much more environmentally sustainable approach than simply reacting to them. Terminix Commercial EcoControl takes its Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to another level by focusing on pests long before they become a problem.
In addition to focusing on inspection, monitoring and correction of pest-conducive situations, Terminix EcoControl also utilizes natural treatment substances like plant essential oils and alternate methods like trapping. Other low-impact products that are required under the EcoControl system include baits and Insect Growth Regulators (IGRs).
The program meets stringent qualifications mandated by ecological and environmental associations, including NPMA QualityPro Green, and is compliant with the IPM requirements of the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED(R) (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system.
Commercial clients with existing programs for environmental sustainability will find EcoControl valuable because it was designed to complement and enhance these approaches. "Combined with other environmentally responsible initiatives, Terminix EcoControl may very well help our customers become eligible for major city, state and federal tax deductions," said
Sublette added that Terminix EcoControl is available now in select commercial branches and expects to complete deployment to the remaining dedicated commercial branches in Q3.
"We couldn't be more excited about this launch," said
Terminix, a division of the ServiceMaster Company, is the nation's largest pest control provider. Headquartered in
