About three months ago, my wife and I began noticing that more and more cockroaches were showing up whenever we went for a late-night glass of water or snack in the kitchen. Groups of two turned to three then four and five went skittering into the cracks once the lights came on.
For weeks, we tried every method we could think of that didn’t involve the use of poison – roach hotels, traps of all kinds, even a makeshift little electrocution machine that I learned how to make on YouTube. After a month had passed and it was becoming apparent that we had barely made a dent in the growing population, we decided to turn to the big guns.
The reason we didn’t call up the exterminators sooner was that we didn’t want to contribute to further environmental degradation. After all, insect populations have been decimated over the past few decades, and the native bird species have all been found to have increasing amounts of consumer-grade poisons in their bodies – we didn’t want our little problem being the tipping point for total ecological collapse.
Luckily, the pest control industry has been paying close attention to the problems caused by out-of-control pesticide usage in both domestic and agricultural settings and has been moving to utilize less destructive chemicals in their extermination and prevention protocols. Here in Orange County, a pest control company that has been on the forefront of utilizing naturally occurring compounds that will not bioaccumulate in the ecosystem is Natural Science Exterminating.
Natural Science uses substances like Orange Oil to both eliminate current infestations and prevent future ones from taking root on your property. These treatments don’t just save the environment – they work just as well as more destructive synthetic substances that do bioaccumulate. If you don’t believe us, just take a look at their customer testimonials:
We have been using Natural Science Exterminating for years. We started back when they were called Hired Gun. We initially hired them to deal with a termite problem. They were able to effectively treat the issue without resorting to tenting. (The other firms we contacted for quotes all wanted to tent.) We continue to use them for annual termite inspections and also for bi-monthly treatment of spiders and ants. Brian, our exterminator, is friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and on-time. He answers all of our questions and gives us options for the best treatment solution for any of our issues.Nicolas Gebelt, Google Review
