Eco friendly substances such as cleaning solutions and chemicals are an issue many people are concerned about and it is a question we are asked frequently.

Many clients trust EcoSan Solutions to use eco-friendly solutions in their homes and businesses. We provide a range of options to suit our customer’s needs.

Insecticides is an area of concern for many of our clients, understandably, people are concerned about the chemical types which are used inside their home or their workspace.

Treatment used to control bugs and insects can have an effect on the indoor air quality, staff, and family with their children. Residual chemicals designed to remain active on surfaces to control bugs can also come into contact with the people and their pets that live or work in the building.

Allergens and skin sensitivity

Insecticide products do not need to be harmful to the health and EcoSan Solutions always aim to use the most allergen free solutions which will not affect the skin – even if our client may have sensitivities or allergies to food or chemicals.

Treatments we use indoors such as high area and window treatments for Fly control over summer, or low area treatment including flooring and bedding for Flea control we always prefer water based formulations. These treatments are quite a bit more sophisticated in comparison to conventional oil based or oil in water options, but water based chemistry is lower odour, less irritating to the skin and is safer for indoor air quality.

EcoSan will not compromise our client’s indoor environments when there is a safer option available.

Environmental impact

The EPA in New Zealand is responsible for the approval of insecticides registered in New Zealand. The dominant concern of the EPA is the chemicals propensity to cause harm on the greater ecosystem. Approved insecticides must meet very strict perimeters and these standards must be tested scientifically to satisfy the EPA. All insecticides available to professional Pest control operators must be approved by the EPA.

EcoSan Solutions use only EPA approved pest control treatment methods and we adhere to the strict limitations on each product so you can expect your family, office space and the environment is not compromised in order to achieve a quick result.

Natural Plant based insecticides

Plant based insecticides have been used for decades for pest control from the control of Fleas, Mosquitos to Bed bugs. The effective nature of plant based insecticides can be seen in the fact that scientists developed synthetic copies of natural plant insecticides such as the pyrethrum family of flowers.

EcoSan solutions provide an organic plant based insecticide for those who prefer a more natural insecticide. Our product formulated using essential oils such as Eucalyptus and Citronella extracts means you don’t need to have your home or office treated will solely lab made products.
