Best of New York 2015

Best Ecofriendly Exterminator

  • Green Apple Pest Management & Solutions


    Instead of dousing a pest-infested space with chemicals, Green Apple homes in on the breeding source first, doing top-to-bottom detective work—for example, when a Manhattan preschool had an infestation of flies last summer, Green Apple traced it back to some old drains and steam-cleaned them until they were fly-free. If it’s bedbugs that ail you, the exterminator comes in with a filtered HEPA-grade vacuum to minimize the use of toxic spray. And when chemicals are necessary, they’re all water soluble, biodegradable, and safe for kids.
