BECAUSE GREEN IS GOOD...
Did you know that there are approximately 3 million poisonings a year attributed to toxic pesticides and that the average American home is contaminated by as many as 12 different unnecessary chemicals used for conventional pest control?*
What we do at Natran Green Pest Control in Houston is help make homes, businesses -- and our community as a whole -- healthier, happier places to live and work. And we do that by using only powerful, botanically based pest control products — instead of synthetic pesticides.
Our customers are health-conscious and socially conscientious fellow Houstonians who want to safeguard their property from the imposition and inconvenience associated with common pests without the use of toxic chemicals. They, like us, care about protecting people, pets and our planet -- and that’s been our dedicated mission at Natran since 2006.
For us, pest control is about providing protection and peace-of-mind to our customers while eliminating the need for harmful pesticides that pollute our shared environment. We offer satisfaction-guaranteed services that utilize powerful, botanically based products instead of the harsh chemicals employed by our competitors.

GREEN IS GOOD FOR YOUR FAMILY
Exposure to toxic pesticides carries both acute and long-term health risks, especially to children and others with compromised immune systems such as the elderly.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that there are 3 million total incidents of poisoning due to conventional pesticide usage each year. The problems associated with pesticide exposure range from neurological damage, asthma, allergies, cancers (including childhood cancers and breast cancer), low sperm count and reproductive disorders.
Chronic exposure to pesticides, which occurs when a person or animal is exposed to small amounts of toxic chemicals for an extended period of time include: Parkinson's Disease, birth defects, low birth weight, production of benign or malignant tumors, genetic changes, blood disorders and nerve disorders.
Pesticide exposure is a much more pervasive problem than many people realize. The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in a study of 9,282 people nationwide, found pesticides in 100% of those tested. The average person carried 13 of 23 pesticides being examined.
At Natran, we believe in protecting people, pets and the planet from unnecessary exposure to toxic chemicals. We use gentle, safe, botanically based GREEN products that are both highly effective and eco-friendly. By choosing GREEN for your pest control needs, you are protecting your family without polluting your home!
GREEN IS GOOD FOR YOUR COMMUNITY
An estimated 70 to 80 billion pounds of toxic pesticide products are sprayed on American lawns each year. The harmful effects of these chemicals extend beyond each individual homeowners' property, making pesticide pollution an issue that effects entire neighborhoods and communities at-large.
Runoff from lawns that have been treated with toxic chemicals can carry these potential poisons into local groundwater supplies. Pesticides applied directly to the ground are persistent soil contaminants that reduce biodiversity in the soil and negatively impact soil conservation. Sprayed outdoor pesticides also contribute to heightened air pollution levels, both locally and beyond.
Animal populations, including beloved pets, are at risk anytime they come into contact with toxic pesticides. Certain "non-target" species are especially vulnerable to the effects of pesticide exposure including frogs, bees, bats and birds.
GREEN IS GOOD FOR OUR PLANET
Toxic pesticides are an eco-nuisance that travel by air, soil and water. Beyond your local community, their effects are considerable and far-reaching.
Pesticides are considered by environmental scientists to be a serious threat to global biodiversity, contributing considerably to the toxic pollution of both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
Pesticides are significant contributors to cumulative problems like air and water pollution because they are carried via wind or water systems into the natural environment. The use of pesticides in one area is rarely if ever a "contained" process, as there is no way to prevent common eco-occurrences like runoff, the movement of contaminated water downstream, from polluting areas far away from the original area of application.
As a global community, we are all connected, and our actions often affect those both near and far. Environmental researchers stress the importance of greatly limiting and radically reducing the amount of toxic pesticides that we use in our homes and businesses, as those chemicals have the potential to spread in ways we can only begin to comprehend.
At Natran, it is one of our Core Values to live a planet-friendly lifestyle -- which includes avoiding the use of toxic pesticides by every means possible. To that end, we use safe and botanically based GREEN pesticides and an IPM (Integrated Pest Management) approach in all our pest control practices.
