Earth Day 2017 on Long Island
At Suburban Exterminating, we celebrate Earth Day every day. We practice integrated pest management to keep pests from entering our customer’s homes. Green products are always available to our customers. In addition, we contribute to Long Island’s beauty by helping to keep many miles of roads and highways clean. And we’re choosing to use fuel efficient vehicles.
Our training and certification includes Green Shield and Green Associate. Green Shield certified companies look to solve the underlying cause of pest problems, providing lasting pest control. This approach has proven effectiveness while reducing pesticides. The U.S. Green Building Council has awarded Suburban Exterminating with the Green Associate certification. The Green Associate certificate is awarded only after strenuous course work and in depth testing. Suburban Exterminating is kept up-to-date on green technology for a changing environment.
We are also part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s PESP program. As Bronze members, we affirm that environmental stewardship is an integral part of our approach to pest management.
