How we achieve eco-friendly pest control

Most pest control companies in Australia don’t use extremely harmful chemicals in their work. The chemistry registered for pest control in Australia is normally relatively safe, if used correctly and safely.

But there’s more to eco-friendly pest control than just selecting the right active ingredient. Choosing a high-quality chemistry formulation (no cost-cutting), avoiding broad pest sprays, and having a good environmental policy are just some of the ways that we try to limit our impact on the environment.

Limiting unintentional poisoning of other species

We acknowledge that it’s not possible to completely avoid harming a small amount of unintended insects. But in our treatments, we do our best to limit our impact on unintended species.

Some examples of how we do this:

Avoiding the use of harmful solvents

Emulsion concentrates are used a lot in the pest control industry. They are cheap and easier to mix in a spray tank. However, they require the use of harmful solvents and surfactants to mix with water. 

We try to avoid the use of emulsions, and instead use suspension concentrates. This type of formulation eliminates the need for nasty solvents. They are non-staining and odourless as well.

Targeted application of our products

Our company doesn’t do broad spraying. We understand the behaviours of the pests we treat and we target our spray applications accordingly.

This means that we can effectively control your spiders and other pests while using minimal pesticides. We don’t compromise the effectiveness of our treatments though. We’ll still meet your expectations for high quality service and effective control of your pests.

our plans for the future

How we intend to improve our eco-friendly pest control

We’ve still got some way to go to improve the way we implement our environmental approach. 

We will replace our petrol pumps with battery powered electric pumps by 2023

We plan to be carbon neutral by 2025. 

Our intention is to replace our utes with hybrid or electric vehicles as soon as something suitable is available.

Pianto's Pest Control COVID-19 Policy

To all of our clients.

We hope you’re all keeping safe and well in this difficult time.

Our business is still operating and servicing our clients as normal, with some changes to procedure.

We are offering flexible payment plans for people who have been financially affected by COVID-19. If you need to arrange a payment plan, please call us and we are more than happy to help.

At this time, the information from federal and state governments is that it is still okay for those in service industries to go to work. We are doing so, while still obeying the rules regarding social distancing:

  • We are doing our best to keep a minimum 1.5m distance from our clients and other residents during our visits. 
  • We are sanitising our hands on arrival and frequently during our visits. We also regularly disinfect our tools before bringing them inside. If you want us to wear protective gloves and a face mask, please let us know – we’re happy to do what we can to help you feel safe.
  • We ask that if you are unwell or isolating that you tell us before we arrive so that we can either reschedule or arrange for other ways to do our job.

Our office procedures remain largely unchanged. We are a mobile business and are very accustomed to running our business on the road. We have no central office to close up. We already have cloud-connected services in place and our business is not largely paper-based.

At the moment we are not experiencing any supply problems. Our suppliers are still trading and we have plenty of stock of our most common chemistry and products to do our job.

Stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you!
