“All is well!” says that annual statement from your drinking water company.
When you read that your drinking water is in compliance with regulatory guidelines, you might feel relieved. But, did you know that testing and regulatory requirements apply to only a small handful of pesticides? Yes, it’s true!
Help reduce the demand for toxic pesticides and encourage ecologically sound alternatives by finding a responsible company to help you with your home’s landscape and lawn maintenance. If you don’t have the time, don’t have the expertise or find a pest problem is beyond your skills, it might be time to hire a professional. By asking the right questions, you can ensure your home is both pest and pesticide-free.
