Magic Joins the U.S. Green Building Council

Magic Pest Management has joined the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The USGBC developed the LEED Certification System to verify that a building is designed and built taking into account its environmental impact during its entire life cycle including construction, occupancy and decommissioning.

"We look forward to being involved in the design and planning stages of construction and renovation projects" stated Ralph Maestre BCE, "We often are called into a building that by design is enabling pests to flourish within the structure. As a Pest Control Professional and Board Certified Entomologist, I can provide advise to prevent such flaws in a buildings design and reduce the possibility of exposure to pest born diseases while limiting the use of pest control products. In addition, Magic's Green Shield Certified Services help both to limit exposure to non-target organisms around the exterior of a building, and reduce the impact to Indoor Air Quality."

Two employees will seek LEED Green Associate status and eventually LEED AP accreditation.

Mosquitoes shouldn't be the Life of the Party

Have you every invited friends over for a relaxing backyard BBQ or had an outdoor party that was crashed by a swarm of Mosquitoes? 

Spraying down your guest with bug spray is probably not what you had planned as entertainment.

What can you do?

Remove water born breeding areas - Man made containers come in a variety of shapes and sizes such as the lid of a garbage can, a flower pot or an old tire behind the garage. Elimination of any stagnant water will prevent an infestation directly on your property.

Magic's Outdoor Party Program can provide temporary relief from biting insects such as mosquitoes for up to 7 days. The program uses all natural botanically based products providing the relief a client expects without applying synthetic pesticides. Temporary control of mosquitoes and other insects such as aphids, ants, bees, boxelder bugs, centipedes, cockroaches, fleas, ground beetles, mites millipedes, silverfish, spiders,
ticks, and wasps is achieved.
These products may be applied as a treatment to the perimeter or recreational areas. It may also be applied as an outdoor yard treatment. This is not a service that is provided under our regular seasonal program.

Mechanical Traps work by producing carbon dioxide. This tricks Mosquitoes into believing that a human is present and as they attempt to feed, they are sucked into the trap. I have little
experience with these units so I will not comment on there efficiency.
