Families consider their lawn an extension of their home for personal activities and enjoy many benefits from a well-cared lawn. Promoting healthy growth and minimizing damage caused by pests and weeds often requires judicious use of fertilizers and EPA-registered products applied by trained, licensed specialists.
Each year our scientists, in consultation with a board-certified toxicologist, evaluate products using a "weight of the evidence analysis" to consider risks to our employees, children and pets, and the environment. We consider the following:
The products we approve for company use contain the same ingredients found in lawn care products that tens of millions of homeowners buy annually at lawn and garden outlets. We ensure these products are applied safely according to federal, state and local regulations. The specific products applied to your landscape are detailed on your invoice with each treatment. The pest products, when applied to the lawn, contain less than 0.5% active ingredient and are considered practically non-toxic at these dilutions. Additional health and safety information can be found at the National Pesticide Information Center, a cooperative program of the U.S. EPA and Oregon State University.
