Recently, numerous serious issues have motivated the pest control industry towards non-toxic solutions. Businesses are reacting to consumer concerns about adverse effects of the overuse of pesticides. The pest control industry is continuously researching and developing solutions that are more effective, sustainable and are better for our environment. Innovations are evolving non-toxic solutions that are more targeted and effective. Researchers are developing new organic-compound solutions, with zero mammalian toxicity, that can repel or destroy pests such as fungal spores that attach to the external body surface of targeted insects. Another significant benefit is that unlike chemicals, pests cannot become resistant to the spores, so we are getting closer to solving a nagging issue with how insect pests learn to acclimate to chemicals and pass on resistant genes.
