What is a Green Business?

Essentially, a green business is an eco-friendly, environment-sustaining company that prioritizes sustainability and conservation in their business practices. Forward-thinking when it comes to environmental health and concerns, these businesses are seeing significant market growth and success as  65 percent of Americans want to buy from sustainable brands and 61 percent of millennials say they're willing to pay more for eco-friendly products and services.


A Green Business Opportunity in Pest Control

While some green businesses may seem obvious, the pest control industry isn’t one of them. However, demand for sustainable/green materials and procedures in pest control is increasing. People want to eliminate pests but in an eco-friendly way.  Green pest control methods focus on prevention and eliminating only the targeted insects when necessary, avoiding using toxic pesticides, and opting for natural-based products.


Mosquito Joe: A Green Pest Control Company

Mosquito Joe takes an environmental approach to pest control. Handling pest issues without having to rely on pesticide products, it can address its clients’ specific pest problems in a way that promotes the health of the local ecosystem and never puts vulnerable species at risk.

Mosquito Joe uses natural service offerings and non-toxic, natural-based pesticides and essential oils, such as lemongrass, peppermint, rosemary, and garlic, to repel mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. It also makes recommendations to mitigate water and seal up entry points. 

These green treatments offer a great alternative to chemicals that can negatively impact pets and the environment and focus on a specific type of pest to minimize the risk to non-target species and reduce the overall impact on the environment.

One of the most important ways that Mosquito Joe sets itself apart is through its participation in the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP). PESP is an elite partnership with the EPA that promotes Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices. It focuses on reducing potential health and environmental risks associated with pests and pesticide use and implementing pollution prevention strategies.

The program has four main goals: focusing on educating the public on pests and pesticide risk, providing resources to members to accomplish their business goals, decreasing pesticide risk through prevention, and acknowledging and rewarding exemplary members for their sustained stewardship in the program.

Mosquito Joe’s green alternative solutions position it as one of the top eco-friendly brands in pest control, a sustainable solution for today’s environmentally conscious property owners.
