Coronavirus and How Treatment Works
To our Kimco customers,
Protecting your family and home is at the heart of everything we do, and the safety and well-being of our employees, customers and communities will always be our first priority. Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we have taken additional actions to ensure that we continue to serve your family safely and without interruption. These enhanced safety measures include:
• If you are scheduled for an interior service, we will ask if anyone in your residence is ill with viral symptoms. If so, we will only perform exterior services. We will not enter your home.
• In many cases, our services can be performed external to your home without entry or human contact. If entry to your home is required or requested, it can be done with little to no human contact.
Treatments for mosquitoes, ticks, wasps and hornets rarely requires interior service. Many other problems can also be treated exclusively outside your home. We also request that you make payment through credit or debit cards by phone to avoid further contact.
• When servicing indoors, we can utilize applicable personal protective equipment.
• You can also be assured that our team members will be vigilant with already-existing health precautions such as regular hand washing and disinfecting service tools and equipment after every home visit. In addition, our team members know that we are committed to taking care of their needs, and they have been advised to stay home if they feel ill.
Our team here at Kimco Green is closely following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and other local and federal health officials. We are committed to being responsive to the needs of our customers and team members as this situation evolves.
Thank you for being a valued Kimco Green customer. We are grateful for the opportunity to help protect your home and family.
Stay safe and stay well,
President, Kimco Green Pest Control
How does your treatment work?
The natural essential oils that we use provide a pheromone interruption agent that impairs the insect’s mental capacity (fries their brain). When combined with ethyl lactate, a corn oil by-product, it becomes a bio solvent which is instrumental in triggering instant erosion and dehydration of the insect’s exo-skeleton and subsequently, the egg and larvae. This differs from the traditional synthetic products that most PCOs use, which attack the insect’s central nervous system. That is what makes the synthetic products dangerous to humans, pets and our environment.
For every insect you see there are hundreds more in egg and larvae stages. Exposure to the products we use will destroy the egg and larvae stage, breaking the cycle and eliminating the next generation of insects.
Our treatment will be instrumental in the demise of numerous non beneficial insects including but not limited to ants, camel crickets, fleas, ticks, spiders, beetles, crickets, roaches, earwigs and many others. It has no effect on sight driven beneficial and pollinator insects such as butterflies or bees. It will also deter rodents from the treated areas.
The first application is the most important and the objective is to make sure a liberal soak is accomplished to all areas including but not limited to the flower beds, shrubbery, grass and concrete areas.
