Natural Pest Management is a category of pest-control services that use natural, organic, botanical and biological materials to effectively and cost-efficiently control pest problems while providing an unmatched margin of safety around people, pets, possessions and the environment.
Our unique Natural Pest Management (Natural Pest Control) provides effective control of pests, such as ants, roaches, spiders, fleas, ticks, silverfish, rodents and other pests without any sprayed liquid chemicals.
Natural Pest Management shares several fundamental characteristics with Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM is a decision-making process that anticipates and prevents pest activity and infestation by combining several strategies to achieve a long-term solution using the least-toxic pesticides possible. In particular, IPM includes premise inspection, pest identification, treatment (control) methods and monitoring.
Natural Pest Management, like any good IPM approach, involves all of these important steps. However, what distinguishes our system is the specific pest-control products (e.g., natural, organic, botanical and biological products) and treatment methods that we use. We do not use any synthetic pesticides or EPA-restricted use pesticides. Click here to read about the pest-control products that we use. In addition, we uses treatment methods such as interior baiting, void-injection dusting, and exterior granular bait applications that have an enormous margin of safety over traditional pest control techniques. Our Natural Pest Management system does not include chemical baseboard spraying inside your home so there is no chemical drift or residue to inhale, or to settle on food or household surfaces. In addition, our system does not use broadcast spraying of liquid chemicals outside of your home so there is no chemical drift to interfere with beneficial insects or to deposit chemicals on areas frequented by pets and children.
Overall, our Natural Pest Management system employs the decision-making methodology of IPM in combination with products and treatment methods that are effective yet address the concerns that many customers have regarding the safety of traditional pest control.
The Xact Natural Pest Management system is based on three zones of protection as described in the picture and table below.
|1||Interior||This Zone ranges from the voids in the walls that frame the home to all areas inside of the home and garage.|
|2||Exterior Perimeter||This Zone is in the immediate vicinity of the exterior walls of the home and any plants or shrubbery in close proximity to the exterior walls.|
|3||Lawn||This Zone is the lawn and other vegetative areas that surrounds the home.|
|1||Inspection & Identification||We perform a comprehensive inspection of your home or building and its surrounding environment to determine:
|2||Environmental Modifications||After a thorough inspection of your home and identification of your pests, your Xact Natural Pest Management Service Technician will make specific modification recommendations for your home and its surroundings to facilitate a successful pest-control solution and/or establish excellent safeguards against future infestations. Areas of recommendation may include:
|3||Interior Service||Our Interior Service is designed to control pests both where you see them and where they are most likely to seek food, water and shelter. We complement environmental modifications with:
|4||Exterior Perimeter Service||Our Exterior Perimeter Service is designed to provide pests with two of their three basic necessities (food and water--the third necessity is harborage). By satisfying these basic needs outside of your home, we reduce the need for a pest to seek these necessities inside of your home. We complement environmental modifications with:
|5||Lawn Service||Our Lawn Service is designed to feed and control the insects on the lawn so they have little incentive to approach your home or building. In particular:
|6||Communication||We view communication with you (our customer) as a critical way in which we transfer value to you. From the day we first visit your property through every service we provide to you, we will clearly and thoroughly communicate to you what we do, why we do it, what results you can expect and when you can expect them|
|7||Quarterly Service (Monitoring)||Our standard annual pest control service is design such that your Xact Natural Pest Management Service Technician will visit your home once a quarter. During these quarterly visits s/he will:
|8||Callbacks||If you ever have a pest issue between quarterly monitoring, we will return to rectify the situation.|
Our Interior Service (Zone 1) protects the area from the voids in the walls that frame the home to all areas contained within these walls.
Insects come to a home seeking food, water or harborage (shelter). So if you feed them on the outside, there is no reason for them to come inside. The purpose of Zones 2 and 3 in our system is to feed and control insects outside of your home.
When insects do enter your home they do so in three different ways:
Our Exterior Perimeter Service (Zone 2) protects the perimeter of your home.
The Xact Natural Pest Management exterior treatment system is different than most other exterior treatment systems. Traditional perimeter treatment (practiced by most pest-control companies) is to broadcast spray a liquid chemical barrier around the outside of your home. Instead of changing the environment in which the insects live (e.g., food, water or harborage), most companies that apply chemical barriers are only masking the true problem.
The Xact Natural Pest Management system uses sprayed chemical barriers whatsoever. Rather, we use a novel perimeter baiting system with a proprietary mixture of highly effective baits.
Our Lawn Service (Zone 3) is designed to feed and control pests on the lawn and other vegetative areas nearby so they have little incentive to approach your home. Pest that have harborage away from your home (for example, a colony nest somewhere on your property) will leave their nest in search of food and water. By providing enticing food (in the form of a bait) on the lawn, we have an excellent opportunity to obtain control over the pests before they ever get close to your home.
The Xact Natural Pest Management lawn treatment is different than most other systems. Traditional lawn treatment (practiced by most pest-control companies) is to broadcast spray liquid chemicals on your lawn.
|Boric Acid||A compound derived from boron, a naturally occurring mineral. Boric Acid acts as a stomach poison and causes insects to die from starvation. We use Boric Acid-based products in various formulations ranging from dust, granules, gels and liquids. These products can control common household insects as well as wood-infesting beetles and termites.||Limestone||Limestone is a sedimentary rock consisting mainly of the mineral calcite (calcium carbonate) that was deposited by the remains of marine animals. We use ground-up limestone as a desiccant to control spiders, cockroaches, ants, crickets, silverfish, earwigs, snails, aphids, mites, bed bugs, termites, scorpions, fleas, ticks, flies, bees, yellow jackets, wasps, and other flying insects.||Diatomaceous Earth||The fossilized remains of tiny, one-celled organisms called diatoms. It kills insects by scratching their waxy outer covering and causing them to dehydrate. We use only "natural grade" diatomaceous earth, which is quite different than the diatomaceous earth sold for use in swimming pool filters. Diatomaceous earth is used to control cockroaches, ants, silverfish, fleas and other pests.||Nematodes||A microscopic worm that lives in soil that acts as a biological control agent. We use nematode species that are parasitic on insects and can be used to control insect pests. These nematodes carry bacteria that can kill pests like fleas, but don't harm people or pets.||Mint Oil & Peppermint Oil||Pressed from the leaves of the spearmint or peppermint plant, the oils are a repellant for mosquitoes, gnats, ants, flies, cockroaches, mice, yellow jackets and other flying pests.||Eugenol||Eugenol is extracted from clove oil and cinnamon. It is active against ants, fleas, flies, yellow jackets, cockroaches and other crawling insects.||Garlic||Dried and ground from garlic cloves and active against ants, aphids, and mosquitoes.||Pheromone Traps||Pheromone traps use "bug hormones" or scents that stimulate the type of scent produced by the female insect to seduce or lure their male counterparts. Males lured into traps are prevented from mating.||Insect & Rodent Traps||Specially designed traps that provide a non-pesticide (mechanical) means of monitoring and reducing insect and rodent populations.||Rodent/Animal Catch and Release Cages||Physical traps/cages used in a humane manner to catch, transfer and release unwanted animals in or around a home.|
|Conventional Spray Service||Xact Natural Pestilizer|
|Synthetic chemicals are washed off and enter the ground water when it rains||Provides treatment at the same time you water your grass, so it is resilent to rain|
|Uses synthetical chemicals||All natural and organic|
|Issue||Xact Natural||Traditional Pest Control Companies|
|Inside Treatment||YES||NO. Many pest control companies provide exterior perimeter treatments only. In other words, they broadcast spray the exterior perimeter of your home with a synthetic chemical in an attempt to kill all insects present (including beneficial insects) and to establish a repellent barrier for future insects. This approach ignores the fact that insects can enter the home on you and our personal items and via landscape bridges that simply pass above the repellent barrier.|
|Because Xact Natural Pest Management is "natural" does that mean it is more expensive than traditional pest control?|
|No! We have spent the past seven years refining our system and driving down the costs to deliver the next-generation of pest control. So, our service costs the same as many other traditional pest control services!|
|What does it cost to treat my home?|
|The cost for treating your home is a function of the size of the home/building/yard to be treated. In some cases, the type of pest may affect the price.|
|How long have you been in business?|
|Xact Natural Pest Management is a fresh new name for companies that deliver our unique brand of pest control. We have been providing natural pest-control solutions in South Florida since 1999.|
|What are Broadcast Spraying and Baseboard Spraying and why are they dangerous?|
|Broadcast spraying and baseboard spraying are traditional methods of dispensing chemical pesticides. A technician with a spray canister and a spray wand showers chemicals onto surfaces of your home or its exterior (the perimeter and lawn). These techniques are imprecise and disperse toxic chemicals in the air you breathe and deposit pesticidial chemical residue on the surfaces and outside areas that you, children, and pets are likely to touch.|
|Is your pest control safer than traditional pest control, because I have pets and kids?|
|Absolutely! We offer an unmatched margin of safety because we do not use any EPA restricted-use pesticides. We use only natural, organic, botanical and biological products, which are either designed by the EPA as general use or minimum-risk materials (which are generally regarded as safe).|
|Do you guarantee your service?|
|You bet! We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee.|
|How long does it take to perform your general pest-control services?|
|For a standard size home, our initial treatment will take several hours. Subsequent services will take about an hour to service the inside of your home and about 30 minutes to service the outside. Unlike many other pest-control companies, our goal is not to rush through the servicing of your home. We take our time to get the job done right!|
|Is there a smell associated with your service?|
|No. You will not smell anything during or after our servicing of your home.|
|How long does it take to see results?|
|Different pest problems require different amounts of time. On average our system can get control in a couple of weeks. Remember, quick kill (known as knockdown) typically only addresses the observable problem, not the root cause of the problem. Our system is designed to get to the source of your pest problem.|
|Does your system work on white-footed ants?|
|Yes. We have consistently and successfully addressed white-footed ant problems using our Natural Pest Management system.|
|Why does your system use multiple zones?|
|Our system establishes three zones of protection for your home. The concept is simple, if you feed pests outside of your home, there is less of a need for them to come into your home.|
|Can my kids play on the lawn after it is treated?|
|Yes. We do not apply any synthetic chemicals to your lawn. Your kids may play on the lawn immediately after we treat it and not have to worry about chemicals on their clothing or skin. Of course, your pets also may play happily in the grass without being harmed.|
|What type of payments do you accept?|
|We accept Visa, Mastercard, Cash and Checks.|
|Are you licensed and insured??|
|Yes. We are licensed by the State of Florida and insured for all services that we perform.|
