Pests can interfere with our enjoyment of our homes. We want to ensure we’re being kind to nature as we engage in pest control. Take a further look here on how.

We are a part of nature. Sometimes, this is a glorious thing, particularly on summer days by the sea, or shaded by cool and leafy trees, or within range of a mountain view. But, there are drawbacks to being a part of nature, too.

Human beings are not the only tenants to be found here on planet Earth. We share our environment with other animals, some of whom don’t see the division between the untamed nature, and our cozy life at home. So, how do we honor our place in the beauty of nature, while trying to better establish that division between the outdoors and our homes for our scurrying, buzzing, bitey little pals?

Well, here’s an infographic based on an earlier piece we published that helps to get that conversation started. Take a look!
