Green Pest Control that’s Safe
Our home pest treatments are applied with environmentally safe, ethical techniques and materials, and we always choose the safest, least invasive method of control in any given situation. We want to help ensure the safety of you, your children, and your pets. As a result, our green home pest control methods stop bugs and rodents without harming your family or the environment.
If a customer requests organic products, we do everything we can to make that happen without sacrificing control. Our technicians can utilize essential oil formulations, Chrysanthemum extracts, or mineral derivatives. We have organic options to control most pest issues, including rodents, and we use inspection and exclusion as tools to keep pests out of living spaces.
Many times, modifying site conditions can make a world of difference. For example, running a dehumidifier in a very damp basement can reduce general pest issues by up to 90% in a home.

Our home pest services always start with an initial inspection to evaluate the presence or extent of any issues and to formulate the best plan of action to prevent or treat the issues. After the inspection and treatments have been made, we’ll communicate:
- What was found
- What was done
- What the homeowner can do to help control and prevent future issues
Follow-up visits are very common for many issues and are generally utilized to ensure we’re controlling the issue and delivering the best service possible.

Using Pest Control as a Proactive Preventative Measure
Pest prevention can help you discover issues early, keeping your home safe. The benefits of prevention include less cost over time, asset and property damage prevention, and mitigating the chances of contracting health issues associated with pests, like asthma, skin allergies, Hantavirus, bites, and Salmonella poisoning.
Pest prevention provides routine inspections of spaces that most people don’t frequent in their home or business, e.g. basements, crawlspaces, attics, etc. Water and moisture issues are some of the most common precursors to pest problems. Other common signs of a pest issue include sightings, droppings, chronic allergy issues, weird noises in the walls and ceilings, dead insects, and bad smells.
Additionally, our preventative programs offer free service calls all year for covered pests. So, there are no additional costs for pop-up pest issues.
How the Climate in Pennsylvania Affects Pest Control
Pennsylvania sees every climate extreme, from freezing ground and snow to drought and 100+ degree heat. We also have long periods of time with high humidity and rainfall, which means that moisture issues are very prevalent.
Therefore, we have a season that contributes to almost all types of pests. Our cold winters force rodents inside buildings to forage for food, shelter, and nesting space. The wet spring rains cause roof and foundation issues, attracting termites and other wood-destroying organisms. The summer heat and humidity are perfect for ants, spiders, and stinging insects to nest and flourish.
No matter what time of year it is, don’t hesitate to reach out to Green Giant about our residential pest control. We service the communities of Reading, Wyomissing, Allentown, Kutztown, and everywhere in between.
Residential Pest Control FAQ
How long does a routine pest control visit take?
Do I have to be home for every visit?
No. We prefer to prevent and control pests from the home’s exterior whenever possible. If there are no issues inside your home, we don’t need to come in. If a problem would arise inside between visits, simply text or call. And we will send someone to address the issues immediately.
Do I have to remember when visits will happen?
No. We utilize text messaging to send reminders for upcoming appointments. There’s no need for you to remember anything. If text messaging isn’t your thing, we can gladly email or call as well.
How long do the products you use last?
If we treat preventatively in your home, the products will control pests for up to 120 days, depending on many factors. Exterior treatment products typically control pests for 90 days or more, unless organic products are used. Organic products tend to have a slightly shorter control life. This is the reason why pest visits are generally scheduled every 3 months.
What if I still see pests after the technician was here?
Contact us! We want to be sure your pest issues are being addressed efficiently and effectively, and we can schedule a return visit to be sure we’re controlling any pest issues you may have.
We Have a 4.6 Average Customer Rating
They are very knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and efficient. We had a carpenter bee problem and they took care of the problem in the most effective and least expensive way. Because of this we contracted them for our quarterly service.
FANTASTIC service with friendly and thorough technicians! The gentleman who comes to my property makes sure to check every crack & crevice & I can see a difference… Unlike my previous pest company who consistently missed things. I only wish I knew about Green Giant sooner!
Yesterday, I had a quarterly service treatment and was having trouble with mice in my attic. Brian quickly addressed the problem; however, he was very cordial, professional and knowledgeable about my current situation. He actually explained why the rodents were there and explained how he was going to take care of the problem. I’ve had numerous pest control technicians in the past and Brian displayed one of my best experiences with a pest control expert! I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is experiencing bug or rodent problems.
