Hey, Austin! We’ve got some big news for you.
On Feb. 1, Natran Green Pest Control officially opens its new Austin location. That means Austin residents can experience what Houstonians have been enjoying since 2006: quality green pest control services and outstanding customer support. This is a big move for our company, and we’re so excited to be branching out and bringing our green pest control services to another part of Texas.
Like Houston and other parts of Texas, we know that Austin struggles with pest control. Cockroaches, termites, mice, roof rats — they’re all common fixtures in Austin and the bane of homeowners’ existence. We know the amount of damage that these pests can cause to a home, and we’ve helped thousands of Houstonians battle the pests in their homes. Now we’re excited to take our services to the people of Austin.
For those in Austin unfamiliar with our green pest control services, here’s what you need to know about Natran, our green pest control services and what we’ll be bringing to Austin when we open on the first day of February.
Who are we?
Houstians know Natran well. We were the city’s first green pest control company, and we’ve been a fixture of the community, helping homeowners rid their homes of pests while minimizing our impact on the environment. For those in Austin who don’t know us yet, we can’t wait to show you what we’re all about.
Natran Green Pest Control was founded in 2006 in Houston. Our mission is to provide quality green pest control services that remove pests from the home without compromising the integrity of the environment or the health of the families we serve. Our founder, Gordon Doran, created the company after he and his wife struggled to find a pest control company that used botanical-based products in Houston. Since there was a lack of green pest control options in the market, Doran and his wife decided to start their own business to fill that need in Houston.
In Houston, our goal has been two-fold when it comes to green pest control: We want to preserve the environment and our customers’ families while taking care of pests in their home.
These days, it’s hard not to read about the destruction that’s being done to our planet. Stories of pollution in our waterways, unsustainable amounts of garbage in our landfills and the diminishing quality of our air fill up news sites.Our earth and its resources are the most important assets that we have, and we believe in doing everything possible to protect them. We at Natran believe strongly that if everyone pitches in and does what they can, we can help mitigate the damage of global warming and preserve our planet for future generations.
But the planet is just one concern of our company. We’re also dedicated to keeping Houston families health, and that means using less harmful chemicals in our pest control products. Whether members of your family have allergies or other medical conditions, we believe in using products that will do no harm to them while still working hard to rid your home of invasive pests.
Some people believe that only the harshest chemicals can fight off infestations of ants, termites, cockroaches and other pests, but we at Natran know that green pest control methods work. We’ve helped thousands of Houstonians protect their homes from pests and their family’s health from harmful chemicals.
Now we’re ready to help Austin residents make the same commitment to the planet and their families with green pest control
What does green pest control mean?
If you’re not familiar with green pest control, it can be confusing to know what constitutes as green pest control and what does not. There is a lot of misinformation out there, so here’s what you should know about green pest control and what it means for your home.
Our technicians use botanical-base products in all of our jobs. No matter what we’re going up against — cockroaches, termites, ants or mice — we use products made up of plants that are just as effective as store-bought chemicals and also do not harm the environment.
Many of our products are made up of:
- Wintergreen oils
Many of these natural products are incredibly effective when used against pests. Our technicians know which combinations will be more effective against different pests. Spiders, for example, do not like the smell of mint. Our technicians can answer any questions you have about different combinations of natural oils and resources to keep pests away from your home.
Our green pest control service starts with an inspection. One of our skilled technicians will come out to your home and identify where the pests are getting into your home. Once they have determined how pests are entering your home and the scale of the infestation, your technicians will come up with an effective plan to stop the infestation in its tracks and prevent a new infestation from taking hold in your home.
While your technicians are in your home, you are free to ask as many questions as you’d like. Your technicians are there to help, so if you’re wondering how you could better prevent an infestation in your home, this is the chance to ask your Natran technician.
That’s another big part of green pest control: integrated pest management. This simply means combining a bit of scientific knowledge with a common-sense approach to keep pests out of your home. It’s a two-fold approach that includes knowing more about the pests themselves — what they eat, what their life cycle is, when they mate — and then using that knowledge to make getting into your home more difficult and less desirable.
Termites, for example, swarm in the spring, and they love to eat wood. To protect against swarms near your home, homeowners should keep bushes away from their homes. Termites love to swarm in bushes and then make their way into the ground or the nearest wood source. If bushes are kept trimmed and away from the foundation of the home, then swarms will be less likely to start burrowing into the ground near your home.
Firewood is also a favorite food source for many termites. When homeowners keep firewood too close to their homes, they run the risk of taking termites inside with them when they want to have a fire in the fireplace. Termites eating the wood can make the jump to the home easily, and when homeowners carry the wood inside and let it sit for a little while, the termites will come out and start looking for other food sources.
Natran’s expert technicians know that this is a lot to learn and understand, so that’s why we recommend asking technicians as many questions as possible. The more you know and understand about your home, the better you’ll be able to protect it.
