We are grateful to Green Shield Certified for their help and support. The certification process helped us improve our IPM services and organization, and we are now more efficient and consistent in our approach to providing effective, prevention-based pest control. We're also better able to communicate that approach to our customers. We are very pleased that we decided to participate in this program!
Rita Bonamo, President, Black Widow Termite & Pest Control, Valley Stream, New York
Our Green Shield Certified service has already earned us multiple new accounts and many inquiries from customers interested in prevention-based, least-toxic pest control. Customers are choosing Peachtree Green because it is the only independently certified Integrated Pest Management service available in this area.
Corey Arnold, CEO/President, Peachtree Pest Control, Norcross, Georgia
The certification process was extremely beneficial to our companies for many reasons. Green Certification made us aware of areas in our green approach which required more attention. We became more aware, more enthusiastic, more focused, and more committed to green overall. We have begun to look beyond green pest control to a green outlook in all we do. We are very pleased with the effort expended and the rewards we know we will see through doing the right thing for us, our customers, and the environment. Go Green!
Lynn Frank, B.C.E. & Technical Director, Suburban / Magic Exterminating, Smithtown & Flushing, New York
Green Shield Certified gives my customers third-party assurance that what we say is what we do. It tells them we're a cutting-edge pest control service provider.
Luis Agurto, President, PESTEC, Antioch & San Francisco, California
It is critical to our mission to have access to professional pest control operators that we can be confident are skilled professionals that understand the importance of safe and effective pest management. The Green Shield program provides us with the credible 3rd party certification we need for that assurance. I applaud their hard work and consistent effort to maintain high quality standards and reduce pesticide use and toxicity.
Rachel Rosenberg, Former Executive Director, Safer Pest Control Project (now the Midwest Pesticide Action Network), Chicago, Illinois
Customers need an easy way to cut through the 'greenwashing' and find pest management companies that truly embrace an integrated pest management philosophy. Credible, rigorous, independent certification programs - like Green Shield - fill a critical need.

I am highly complimentary of the Green Shield Certified mark and standards, since it clearly identifies smarter practices. This Certification gives all parents and homeowners the peace of mind that non-chemical and effective approaches are being used, credible experts are involved, and the health of the children, pets, and environment are considered with every decision.
