Frequently Asked Questions


What does “Good Earth” mean?

Good Earth has been providing low impact pest control since 1989. We provide solutions through a holistic approach, putting emphasis on exclusion, education, sanitation, and environmental changes while carefully selecting pesticides to use when necessary.

Is Good Earth a chain or franchise?

No, we are a 100% independent organization. There are other companies throughout this country with similar names, but they are not affiliated with us in any way.


Does Good Earth use chemicals?

Yes, we do use some chemicals, but we are very careful in selecting which ones to use. Our approach is to always choose the best product based on 3 factors:

  • Lowest toxicity to people and their pets
  • Must be effective in controlling pests at a low dosage rate
  • Low impact on the surrounding environment

What about contracts?

Good Earth does not have locked-in contracts. We use service agreements that do not have any sort of cancellation punishment or buy-out cost. Basically, we will continue serving you as a client for as long as you wish with NO obligation or penalty for cancelling service.


Is Good Earth really a family business?

Absolutely. Good Earth is owned by Rich and Rene Kesecker, with each of their 2 children being involved in daily operations. In addition, there are other extended family members and spouses who are also part of the business. However, regardless of their last name, anybody who is employed here is considered part of the Good Earth Family. It is one of our Core Values.

Are the products you use toxic?

In pest control, everything used carries some toxicity. We choose products that are the least toxic to our clients and their pets. In fact, 99% of the products we use only carry a “CAUTION” label, the lowest signal word regarding human toxicity. Still, we cannot say that they are non-toxic, only that they are very low in toxicity to people and their pets.

Will I see the same person every time my service is performed?

For the most part, yes. We try to have a dedicated technician per account. However, if an employee takes time off or is sick, then the schedules will need to be adjusted and you may have someone different doing your service.

What about bees and other beneficial pollinators?

Good Earth has some in house policies that are put into place to specifically protect bees.

  • We never treat honey or bumble bee nests, even if they are in the wall of someone’s home. At that point, it is best to involve a beekeeper to try and remove and retain the nest.
  • We never service around or above plants where bees are actively foraging.
  • We do not use neonicotinoids on the exterior of buildings. Neonicotinoids are great products but there has been some debate lately on their role in declining health of bee colonies. We proactively made the choice to not use these materials on the exterior of buildings until more conclusive research is done. We do use these products on the interior of homes for very specific services, such as bed bug and flea treatments.

The technicians do a great job. Knocks to make sure we are here and dogs are safe before he does the job. Very professional.
