A Green Shield Certified Service
Are You Going Green?
Are you concerned about pesticides and the impact they can have on the environment? Well, so are we! That's why Peachtree Pest Control developed the "Peachtree Green" Program. Our proven techniques are highly successful in limiting pesticide applications while continuing to protect your health and property from pests. The key is our focus on pest prevention rather than correction. We'll educate you about pest friendly conditions in your home or business that, when changed, greatly reduce the need for these products. Our Peachtree Green program is the first in the Southeast to obtain the coveted Green Shield Certified designation and in 2009 was awarded the International IPM Excellence Award for Environmental Stewardship. We know what it means to be Green in the pest management industry...that's the Peachtree Promise!

Peachtree Pest Control has earned Green Shield Certification, the first provider in the Southeast to achieve this third-party credential. Customers in Georgia, northern Florida and southern South Carolina now have the option of choosing the "Peachtree Green" service, ensuring a real environmentally friendly approach to pest management. The credential is offered by the independent, non-profit IPM Institute of North America, which verifies company performance using a rigorous, on-site evaluation. This intensive review examines 63 separate aspects of the pest management service. Green Shield Certified is operated by the IPM Institute of North America, an independent, non-profit organization based in Madison, Wisconsin and is modeled after the Institute's award-winning IPM STAR program for schools.
Peachtree provides non-chemical options including rodent-proofing and other sanitation and exclusion based measures to prevent problems before they start. Chemicals are used as a last resort and only the least amount of least-toxic pesticides are used. Peachtree has been recognized by the US EPA as a leader in reducing overall pesticide use in the environment; in December 2003 the company was accepted into the agency's Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP.)
Peachtree is committed to the principles of Integrated Pest Management, or IPM. "We're not in the chemical application business," says Corey Arnold, Peachtree's president and CEO. "That's not how you solve pest problems." Peachtree's "green" approach is effective - Peachtree uses inspection, monitoring and proper identification to determine the root cause of pest problems and find a solution.
Everyone can benefit from a green approach. Residential customers and commercial facilities including "green buildings" will appreciate an emphasis on long-term solutions that reduce both pest complaints and pesticide use. For example, by carefully inspecting and sealing gaps and holes in the exterior of structures, pest complaints can be reduced by as much as 65%. A strong focus on training also sets Peachtree apart. Every Peachtree branch holds a staff training session weekly, covering pest biology and the latest strategies for effective control with a minimum of pesticide use.
"Peachtree Pest Control has an industry-leading emphasis on training," according to Dr. Thomas Green, president of the IPM Institute. "Training is key to making sure everyone is on board with the latest information and strategies to manage pests effectively."
