As a Florida native and Tampa Bay resident of nearly 40 years, I have watched and observed the growth and changes that this area has undergone. This awareness has led me to develop growing concerns about the local environmental changes, many of which has manifested through the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides on our homes and landscapes. My commitment to improving the environment is not only through the services that I offer, but through creating more local awareness, as well as sharing my knowledge with the community about the effects of chemical fertilizers and harmful pesticides on our environment. We take pride at Florida Organic Lawn and Pest to provide safe and natural pest control and fertilizing options. IPM, or Integrated Pest Management, is the most important aspect to pest control. Not only do I have the work experience of over 10 years in the field, I also received a certificate of Pest Control Technology from the University of Florida. I am committed to being a part of the pest solution and my concerns have become my passion, through both work experience and education.
