Environmental Responsibility Practices… Less is More
Butterflies, for example, are very susceptible to pesticides, as are Hummingbirds, Praying Mantis and Honey Bees, just to name a few beneficial and popular creatures. On the other hand, a carefully selected bait material that’s designed to attract only the target pest will satisfy our Clients’ needs while still allowing us to remain as “Green” as possible. These practices have become part of some of our Clients’ published Standard Operating Procedures and are approved by food plant auditing agencies.
Our Wildlife Control Division first makes certain a nuisance animal must be trapped, which may place the animal in an unfortunate circumstance. Preventive measures such as creating uninviting conditions are always evaluated. Every effort is made to have protected and domestic animals released to the proper authorities, in an appropriate wildlife area or placed with a responsible family.
In addition to responsible control methods, Shoreline Services is always pursuing ways to help our environment as a whole. Current measures include:
- Service routes and plans have been consolidated to reduce fuel usage and wasted trips
- Recycling efforts for articles that are safe to re-use
