A Closer Look
Terro-PCO is a green pesticide that can be used by your Pest Management Professional in a Green Pest Management program designed specifically to protect your home. As a borate-based product, Terro-PCO has a very low mammalian toxicity and targets specific pests. This reduces the impact on people, pets and non-target insects beneficial to the environment (such as butterflies and honeybees). Also, your PMP will apply Terro-PCO only where needed, further reducing any unnecessary impact to the rest of the environment. And since it is long-lasting, less product is required for a successful and effective Green Pest Management program.
How it Works & Why It’s Green
Its super-sweet bait may lure ants quickly, but Terro-PCO’s ultimate effect on target pests comes from the way the boron molecules in its active ingredient interfere with a pest’s metabolism. Because pests cannot excrete excess boron as humans and other organisms can, the boron builds up in their systems and ultimately interrupts the normal chemical process of transforming food into energy. So, by ingesting Terro-PCO, the insect is unable to extract nutrition from its food and effectively starves to death. Humans, pets and other living things don’t share the risk because they are able to excrete excess boron from their bodies.
