With the onslaught of unpredictable weather all around the world, it’s time to have a think about the methods that we adopt towards pest control. Whenever we see ants, the first thing that comes to our mind is commercial pesticide spray, and more often than not, we spend a good 5 to 10 minutes chasing the pest around and spraying every square inch of the floor.

However, every single time we use pesticides, we are contributing to the growing hole in the ozone layer as well as global warming, which in turn, is responsible for the bouts of nasty weather!
Another good reason to avoid commercial pesticides is due to their highly toxic nature. Long-term inhalation and skin contact with pesticides can lead to health problems. If you have children, old folks or pets living with you, then its time to get rid of those bottles of commercial spray.
Here at ORIGIN, we have a strong environmental policy regarding pest control. Some of our methods of pest elimination include gel baiting, as well as ULV misting (not fogging)
So, the next time you spot ants in your midst, swap your pesticides for exclusion methods like wiping up any spilled food or drink. It’s a good way to kill the pest without killing the ozone layer.
