Exodus Pest Control Portland, OR
When I began my career in pest control, I worked for a company that was among the first to implement Integrated Pest Management Techniques. According to the Purdue University's IPM Technical Resource Center, Integrated Pest Management techniques are "An ecological approach to pest management that effectively manages pests in a way that minimizes adverse effects on people and the environment." As you might imagine, pest techs didn't exactly welcome this philosophy fifteen years ago. But once we realized that using fewer chemicals and safer practices were effective, we gradually began to see the light.
Hopefully this explains why it's so difficult to answer if our company is green. I've been doing it this way for so long, it feels silly to go and jump on a bandwagon. We use the same chemicals the "green" companies are using, but fewer of them, and very rarely inside the living space of your home. Your safety is our number one concern.

Bumble Bees are big, bulky, hairy and sometimes menacing. They build a relatively large hive, usually in an abandoned rodent burrow tunneled under a house or shed, or in a wall cavity with an exposed entrance close to the foundation. They are also considered a beneficial insect but will sting under provocation.
Skunks are opportunistic omnivores, and will eat grubs, insects, garbage, carrion, and honeybees. They are well known for the musky spray scent that can be sprayed in a general direction, or pin-streamed with blinding accuracy up to 15 feet away. They make their homes under decks, foundations, in crawl spaces, under outbuildings.
Mice are small; their bodies are usually between three and four inches long, and their tails another two inches to three inches. They weigh about one ounce, and are gray to brown to almost black. They have a keen sense of smell, and are not picky about what kinds of foods they eat, as long as it fresh. The house mouse can jump as high as 18 inches straight up, climb any vertical surface as long as it isn't smooth, and they are great swimmers.
