I’m paranoid. I’m paranoid about what’s in my kids food, the air that we breathe here in Salt Lake City, and paranoid about the cleaners and products I bring into my home. But I still hate spiders. Like HATE them. A lot. I’d love to let their little natural habitats flourish with their little spider communities, but that will have to be in someone else’s home and yard.
- Most of their products are biologically and organically derived (i.e. no nasty fumigation or gases)
- They specialize in products that are low impact to people, but high impact for pests. (one of their products is literally made from crushed up shells that cut up the little pests feet and you know . . . make them die)
- Treatments are specially formulated based on the biological make up of insects
- Alterra does targeted treatments versus broadcast treatments (no “baptizing” your yard with harsh chemicals)
I’ve been using them this year and one of the big differences (outside of the environmentally friendly piece) is that they search and destroy my wasp nests every time. This is the first year in the 10 years we’ve lived here that we haven’t had any wasp problems. They find nests that I haven’t even noticed and knock them out with each service. LOVE!
