Fort Wayne Exterminator Uses Guaranteed Green Pest Control Techniques

A common green option is the use of floating row covers, where porous plastic fabric is wrapped around plants to shield them from insects; the sheet is translucent, allowing sufficient light to reach the leaves while keeping them safe from outside threats. A version of this incorporates sticky sections that are colored to be attractive so that they can trap particular insects.

Artificial pheromones are also available to lure pests into traps, hindering their chances to reproduce and making a dent on their overall numbers. This method is especially effective when combined with the previous two techniques, since pheromones serve as an early warning system due to their tendency to attract the males that usually serve as advance scouts for itinerant pest species.
