As an industry leader, our goal is to provide you with progressive pest control solutions that reduce potential health risks to humans and the environment. Your safety is our first priority. Alterra's application methods, products, training, and a commitment to the environment separate us from the competition.
Alterra is also a proud member of the EPA's Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program. Admittance into this program is only provided to those organizations that adhere to a higher standard of alternative pest control practices. At Alterra, we promise to take care of your home like it was our own.
Alterra is committed to helping protect the world's health from disease-carrying pests. To do this, Alterra has partnered with the Nothing But Nets campaign to help stop the spread of the deadly disease Malaria, transmitted by the mosquito bite. As a proud sponsor of this effort to help save lives, Alterra dedicates a portion of company profits annually to Nothing But Nets to provide insecticide-treated bed nets to countries with the greatest need. Together we can help save the lives of millions from this deadly killer.
"I was impressed that Gerry took a yellow exterior cleaning broom to remove spider webs and wasps nests from my home. I had never seen your competitors use such a tool before. The 20 foot handle on this thing made it easy for him to remove debris without damage to the home. Thanks!"
