Compliance with BPCA and Regulatory legislation
As a member of the BPCA (British Pest Control Association) Terminex is committed to ensuring compliance with all industry and government standards.
All work is carried out in accordance with the latest health and safety regulations, and with regard to all known and potential risks.
All chemicals and preparations used in treatments have been approved by the government and are applied strictly in accordance with the manufacturers’ instructions.
All pesticides used are biodegradable, thus preventing any medium or long-term damage to the environment.
Terminex also offers a range of organic treatment options, which is extremely important to all our organic food customers who need to comply with The Soil Association regulations. We also have many domestic customers who request organic solutions to their pest problems.
Terminex strongly believes in protecting the environment, and as a result we take all possible steps to use high efficiency/low volume pesticides in treating your pests. These high efficiency pesticides are usually more expensive by volume than broad spectrum pesticides, as they have been designed and manufactured to specifically target certain pests. Their high level efficiency means that our success rate in treating your pests is very high, and as such, we do not need to use as much pesticides as other broad spectrum pesticides, which helps save the environment from excessive use of pesticides.
Terminex specialises in offering a range of organic treatments to all its customers. So both commercial and domestic customers can choose chemicals that are less harmful on the environment. Some people are highly sensitive to conventional insecticides, and whilst all our insecticides are bio-degradable and only remain airborn for up to 20 minutes after spraying, some people still worry that they may suffer an adverse reaction. E.g. Pregnant women and/or people with young children.
In addition, to boost our “green” credentials, Terminex endeavours, wherever possible, to minimise the environmental impact of our vehicle fleet. We use small low emission vans for all technicians, and are aiming to use “hybrid” (petrol/battery) vehicles wherever possible. We currently use the Toyota Prius hybrid car for most inner city journeys.
