In May 2011, Whitworth Pest Solutions was selected by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a “Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program” (PESP) Gold Member. This recognition is reserved for PESP members who have attained the highest level of participation in the PESP. Each Gold member has pledged that environmental stewardship is an integral part of their pest management program and passed an EPA compliance screening.
Established in 1994, PESP is EPA’s premier partnership program dedicated to reducing pesticide risk in both agricultural and non-agricultural settings. The program works with the nation’s pesticide-user community to reduce human health and environmental risks of pesticide use and prevent pollution. Additionally, it promotes the adoption of innovative, alternative pest control practices, including IPM and the use of biological pesticides.
Known as “the mark of excellence in pest control,” the QualityPro designation can be achieved by ensuring that all employees adhere to a set of standards far above what is required by state and federal regulations. GreenPro companies are identified as environmentally-responsible businesses that employ a comprehensive, environmentally friendly approach when treating a property.
