A Bellingham businessman with a background in carpet cleaning launched a pest control company last month.
Gavin Green opened G Green Inc. Pest Management to service homes, multi-family complexes and businesses in Whatcom County, according to a press release.
As a carpet cleaner, Green was often asked to do pest control work, he said in the press release.
“My carpet cleaning company built its reputation on being green and providing healthy home environments,” Green said in the release. “Using integrated pest management, G Green Inc. will bring the same approach to controlling pests like spiders, rodents, ants, fleas, birds and more.”
Integrated pest management involves using pests’ lifecycles and other biological information to manage and remove them. Green said his method allows him to manage pests economically with little hazards to people, property and the environment.
“There is much more to controlling pests than just spraying chemicals,” Green said. “When we do have to spray, we choose the least toxic options first and then apply the least amount that will still achieve the desired results.”
