Mosquito Joe & the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program
Mosquito Joe was recently admitted into the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP) established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Through this partnership our goal is to provide low-risk pest management, so that you can enjoy your outdoor spaces without the hassle of mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas and with the peace of mind that Mosquito Joe is taking every precaution necessary when handling, applying, and disposing our products.
Created by the Office of Pesticide Programs Environmental Stewardship Branch (ESB) in 1994, the PESP program seeks to increase the education of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and reduce the amount of health and environmental risk associated with using pesticides in areas that people live, work, play, and farm.
What this means for you
Mosquito Joe’s partnership with the PESP program demonstrates our commitment to providing low-risk outdoor pest control for residential and commercial properties. As part of a small number of pest control companies and organizations with membership, we are committed to educating our customers on the importance and impact of integrated pest management.
Integrated Pest Management Approach
According to the EPA, an Integrated Pest Management approach is “An effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life-cycle of pests, and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment.”
Here’s what you can expect from Mosquito Joe:
- Education on the importance of outdoor pest control and the appropriate preventative actions to take to protect yourself and your family.
- Raise awareness of alternative methods of pest management including traps, baits, botanical products and garlic.
Mosquito Joe is proud to be affiliated with an elite partnership that is committed to providing environmentally conscious service and educating consumers. For more information on the PESP partnership, please visit the EPA website here.
