Lake Norman's Commitment To Green
On October 20th of 2016, Go-Forth was received by the EPA as part of their Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program. With this membership, Go-Forth’s Green Pledge is to continue providing services safe for the environment and our clients. Being with PESP means we will have access to innovative services and technology to continue this commitment to lower risk pest management practices. After more than 50 years of using a full range of highly effective services that never negatively impact people, pets, or the environment, Go-Forth is proud to be part of this program.
Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP)
Established in 1994, the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP) is an EPA partnership program that works with the nation’s pesticide-user community to promote Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices. PESP is guided by the principle that partnership programs complement the standards and decisions established by regulatory and registration actions. The informed actions of pesticide users can further reduce the risks from pests and pesticides by playing a major role in ensuring human health and environmental safety.

7 Ways We're Green
At Go-Forth Pest Control, every service we offer is green. All of our services use only green and EPA-registered Reduced Risk products both inside and outside of your home except for treatment of *specialty pests. If you’re interested in going “hyper-green”, call us at 336-841-6111 or click here to learn about our Botanical Essentials option.
*Specialty pests include but are not limited to bed bugs, fire ants, mosquitoes, and ticks.
1. Product Applications
All product applications to your home use ONLY GREEN and EPA-registered “REDUCED-RISK” products.
2. Integrated Pest Management
We use Integrated Pest Management: employing proactive, non-pesticide measures along with smart product application to overall minimize the amount of products needed.
3. Preventative Exterior Control
We practice preventative, exterior pest control by focusing on stopping bugs from ever even entering your home.
4. Training & Certification
All team members undergo extensive training, certification, and ongoing education on insect biology and treatment. This means we treat smarter and only where it matters most instead of simply hoping for good luck and using more product.
5. State-Of-The-Art Equipment
We use high-end, state-of-the-art equipment which allows us to use minimal products in the most effective ways.
6. Professional Advantages
By choosing a professional company like Go-Forth instead of treating yourself, you don’t have to store any pesticides in your home where children and pets play, nor do you ever have to come into contact with pesticides.
7. Bee Protection
All applications are designed to avoid contact with bees. Our primary active ingredient for outside the home has relatively low impact on honeybees after the spray has dried.
