ELMHURST, Ill  – Anderson Pest Solutions has received Gold Status from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP) as an “outstanding environmental steward.”

As stated on the EPA web site, “Gold membership is reserved for PESP's outstanding environmental stewards. These members’ demonstrated commitment to pesticide risk reduction makes them models for other PESP members. Gold members may develop an IPM strategy, demonstrate significant and sustained progress in reducing pesticide risks, and independently measure the progress of their IPM implementation.”

Established by EPA in 1994, the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program is a voluntary partnership program that promotes the adoption of innovative, alternative pest control through Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices.  

According to Mark O’Hara, president of Anderson Pest Solutions, “Anderson is committed to achieving permanent pest solutions while reducing or eliminating pesticide use in every account we service. Our strategy and tactics have always been built around eliminating the source of pest problems, which usually come down to food, water, and harbourage issues. When you approach pest control from that perspective, the solutions often don’t require the use of pesticides or rodenticides. We’ve been doing it this way for so long that it’s just common sense to us. It’s gratifying that our efforts have been recognized by the EPA.”
