It's Mother Nature against Mother Nature (it's a win-win solution)

Ford's Hometown Services, Protecting You & Your Environment Using Nature's Insecticide

FORD'S HOMETOWN SERVICES professional technicians are constantly striving to improve your service by using the latest technology available. We proudly use products from Prentiss Incorporated, which contain a patented blend of botanical oils that effectively targets a broad spectrum of pests... not people or pets. Lowest environmental and mammalian toxicity and proven performance characterize Prentiss' botanical products. Using this new technology we can effectively manage virtually any pest with an unprecedented margin of safety.

Unlike other pesticides, the molecular structure in Prentiss Botanicals plant oil active ingredients targets and blocks receptor sites for a key neurotransmitter called octopamine, which is only found in invertebrates, such as insects. Since mammals do not have receptors for octopamine, Prentiss's plant oils have no adverse effect on them. These plant oils are classified as "Generally Regarded As Safe" (GRAS) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are approved as food additives. These plant essential oils, such as thyme oil, clove oil, rosemary oil, wintergreen oil and others, are used to add flavor and aroma to many food, beverage and cosmetic products such as non-alcoholic beverages, cakes, candy sweeteners, gum, and lipstick.

Our certified professional technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of your home or business, identify the problem pests and provide a written report. In order for our service to be most effective and guarantee your complete satisfaction, we may suggest that certain corrective actions be taken. These measures might include eliminating food sources, removing clutter, or trimming outdoor vegetation near the structure. Our knowledgeable technicians will gladly point out conditions favorable to insect pests.

If necessary, we will then apply a Prentiss product that contains plant essential oils or one that combines these oils with natural pyrethrum (from chrysanthemum flowers). Depending upon the pest encountered, we may use a product that has a botanical fragrance associated with it. This "floral" naturally occurring fragrance or scent is inherent in the plant oil and is much the same fragrance one would experience when opening a jar of spice and will dissipate after application.

FORD'S HOMETOWN SERVICES technicians undergo a rigorous training program. They regularly attend classes conducted by industry professionals and leading university personnel. We look forward to serving you.
