With a decades-long record of environmentally responsible pest control success, Piedmont Triad company joins Environmental Protection Agency’s PESP as Bronze member, Go-Forth Pest Control reports
Go-Forth Pest Control has been selected for membership in the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP) of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Since 1994, PESP has encouraged the voluntary adoption of environmentally responsible approaches among the nation’s pesticide users. As the Piedmont Triad’s leading pest control company, Go-Forth Pest Control has for over 50 years provided a full range of highly effective services that never negatively impact people, pets, or the environment. The company’s strong, longtime commitment to eco-friendly extermination has led to its recognition as an environmentally friendly pest control company by PESP and the EPA.
“We’re proud to announce that we have been welcomed as a Bronze member in the EPA’s highly successful Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program,” said third-generation Go-Forth Pest Control owner Chase Hazelwood, “Solving pest problems does not have to mean putting people, animals, or the environment at risk. This is a principle that we at Go-Forth have recognized and lived by for decades. It is therefore an honor to join PESP and help set an even more prominent example for others to learn from.”
The modern environmental movement in the United States is often traced back to the 1962 publication of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. An aquatic biologist by training, Carson detailed the hidden damage the widespread, indiscriminate use of pesticides like DDT was doing to various parts of the environment.
Since then, the situation has improved greatly. Aided and guided by initiatives like PESP, along with a much improved awareness of the issues, American pesticide users have become far more responsible as a group, reducing environmental risks and damage done, as a result.
As the Piedmont Triad’s leading pest control company, Go-Forth Pest Control has for over 50 years provided a full range of highly effective services that avoids negatively impacting people, pets, or the environment. Since opening its doors in 1959 in High Point under founder Frank Goforth, the company has focused on providing the kind of honest, professional, community-focused service of which environmental responsibility is a natural part. Even while having evolved over the years, as by expanding into lawn care services, Go-Forth Pest Control today proudly upholds that legacy.
Go-Forth Pest Control therefore makes for an especially suitable member for the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program. As a member of PESP, Go-Forth Pest Control will continue the company’s long record of environmentally responsible pest control and work with program directors to pursue even safer and more productive approaches to pest management.
