Ethical Considerations of Pest Control in the Lower Mainland of BC

Pests are unwanted and invasive, but that does not mean removal has to be unethical. At Gilpin’s Pest Control, our team is dedicated to finding a viable, environmentally friendly, and ethical means of removing pests from your property.

If there are pests on your property that you want to be removed, considering ethical pest control can be a great option for you and your neighborhood. Beyond removing the pests from your property, you help to maintain a balanced ecosystem.

How is Ethical Pest Control Achieved?

There are better ways to remove pests from your property than spraying every inch with pesticides. Whether it’s a residential, commercial, or industrial property; there is sometimes no need to apply harsh chemicals to an insect infestation. 

For example, when treating ant infestations, we use a natural bacterium (spinosad) in a bait that ants find attractive and take it back to the nest to feed to the rest of the colony and kill most colonies within 1-2 weeks. This is an effective low-risk control option for carpenter ants, fire ants, and many other ant species.

When it comes to treating rodent infestations, we use a combination of trapping stations, enzymes that break down scent trails, and repellents to get rats out of your home and away from your property.

Why Choose Ethical Pest Control?

Even though pests can be problematic, they still deserve humane and ethical treatment. If you are weighing different removal methods, consider opting for a more humane choice.

As an exterminator, we take great pride in protecting your home and the environment as a whole.  With our natural Biopesticides, Rodenticides, and trapping methods, we can fully remove any infestation from your home without causing lasting damage to your family or the environment.
