Protect Yourself From Pests With Covenant Pest Control

Keeping pests out of your home or commercial property is no easy task in Texas. We have a huge variety of different pests that can invade our spaces and pose multiple threats. This means we sometimes have to take drastic measures when it comes to pest control. Unfortunately, there are problems with this approach, too.

One of the biggest issues with pest control is the impact that it has on the environment. Industrial pesticides are the biggest offenders, but large populations of people all taking individual pest control measures can also have a negative effect on the environment.

The good news is that the pest control industry is taking much-needed measures to improve its technologies and methods so that they have a less severe impact on local ecosystems. This doesn't just protect our environment from destruction, but it also protects us from harm.

There are several different problems that traditional pest control can cause. One of the biggest issues is that many different pesticides used to treat common pest insects can also have the unintentional side effect of reducing wanted and even vital insect populations. Bees are a good example. Pesticides used to keep nasty bugs away from homes, businesses, and crops have drastically reduced honey bee populations, and of course, this is bad news for everybody because we need bees to pollinate our food.

Good insects in danger from pesticide use include:

  • Bees
  • Butterflies
  • Moths
  • Fireflies
  • Ladybugs

Another major issue with traditional professional pest control products is that they can leak into the water system. This is especially true of outdoor pesticides, which may drip off of plants and absorb into the ground or run off down the same storm drain that rainwater, which will eventually become drinking water, runs down.

Both of these issues require a new generation of environmentally friendly pest control products. Here at Covenant Pest Control, we are dedicated to staying on top of the latest developments in eco-friendly pest products so that we not only protect your home and business from pests but also do it while minimizing harm to our local ecosystem. Nobody wants to kill bees or drink the same pesticide they used to kill the cockroaches in their kitchen.

Our Eco-Friendly Control Process

  1. Inspection - The first thing we’ll do when we come out to treat for any pest is perform a thorough inspection. This allows us to get a sense of what kinds of pests we’re dealing with, how severe the infestation is, and where they’re getting in, living, and breeding. We’ll build an eco-friendly pest treatment plan based on our findings.
  2. Treatment - We offer all-natural botanical pest treatment products. These plant-based products use a combination of plant oils to both kill and repel pest insects. We use these products to treat your home along baseboards, windowsills, doorframes, etc. The botanical treatments make your home less attractive to invading insects and can also eliminate populations already inside.
  3. Follow-Up - The residual effect of botanical products is less long-lived than traditional methods. This means we usually need to treat more frequently (often on a monthly or bi-monthly basis) to increase the efficacy of the treatments. Depending on the severity of your infestation, we may also suggest supplementing the botanical products with low-impact traditional ones.

  • What do cockroaches eat?

    Cockroaches feed on both plants and animals. They will feast on almost anything but especially like sugary foods, grease and fat, starches, and meat products.

    They will even eat glue, book bindings, and human hair.

    Cockroaches are attracted to decaying plants, rotting trash, compost piles, dog droppings, and cat litter. These unwanted pests are known as the sanitation workers of the animal kingdom. The worse something smells, the more attracted the cockroaches are.

    Keeping your home and yard clear of debris and utilizing pest control will help eliminate these pesky critters.

  • Lifecycle of a Cockroach

    Cockroaches go through 3 stages of life: egg, nymph, and adult. Females produce one egg sac each month for ten months. Each sac contains on average 16 eggs. The female cockroach will carry an egg case for several days and will then place it in a safe, damp place.

    On average cockroaches live 6 to 15 months depending on the species, moisture, and temperature.

  • Am I legally obligated to do a new construction treatment?
    Yes. Here in Texas, it is legally mandated for all new wood constructions to incorporate termite preventive measures. This is not just the case in Texas but in the majority of the country. At least 34 states require some kind of termite treatment for all new wood constructions, and most of these states are in the southern half of the country, where most termite problems occur.
