Spring has sprung! Get ready for sunny weather and a host of pesky garden and home pests that love the heat. Did you know that apart from our conventional range of products, we also offer a natural range of pest control solutions?

If you’re not too clued up on natural pest control, we have you covered. Here’s what you need to know…

Are natural pesticides still poisonous?
Yes, they are. These products are designed to kill a specific pest. The only difference is that a natural pesticide is less persistent in the environment; it breaks down quicker.

What are the benefits of using natural products?

Better Carbon Footprint
Natural products contain a lower percentage of greenhouse gasses which means a lower carbon footprint.

Ecological Sustainability
Natural products are gentler on the environment and it’s ecology, meaning that there is a lower instance of secondary poisoning to other animals that prey on the targeted pest.

Child & Pet Safety
Natural products are far less harmful if pets or children are exposed to them.
