The past year has brought us more time at home than I ever dreamt possible. We have always been an on-the-go family with a super active calendar between sports, family outings, and gatherings with family and friends. But spending more time enjoying our home together as a family has been the silver lining.
While I’d already shifted many of our cleaning products and foods to safer, cleaner options, I honestly hadn’t thought about our pest control and the toxins traditional pest control companies could be introducing into our home.
With Auggie crawling (and now toddling), Porkchop waddling (if you know, you know, ha!), and the other 3 kids playing on the floor inside and in the yard outside basically nonstop, I was SO pumped to learn about Aptive Environmental pest control and how they’re different from the norm – and awesome for families like mine!
Aptive’s motto is that every home should be enjoyed, and I couldn’t agree more! We made the switch to Aptive pest control this spring and haven’t looked back.

Aptive is Human
When our technician, Matt, came for the first time, he was super friendly and interacted with Auggie (while masked and distanced, of course). We ran through a plan that was customized for our home and he let me know that they generally don’t spray indoors when there’s a baby in the house under a year old, unless we’d be out of the house for 2+ hours — something that never even occurred to me. It was Aug’s naptime, so I hadn’t planned on leaving the house. Matt assured me it was no big deal, that he would get started outside, and that I could schedule an indoor service whenever it was convenient for us at no cost with no questions asked.
It was so nice to know that Aptive prioritized the people in my home versus their schedule.
Aptive Uses Different Ingredients
We live in an older home (built in the early 1960s) and have mature trees around, which means a lot of action at certain times of year – especially with spiders! We also have a vinyl fence – which has been home to a wasp nest in the past – not a great combo with kids playing in the backyard, let me tell you!
Aptive uses environmentally, pet and family-friendly pest control solutions to get rid of any pests. Their treatments use effective but minimal toxicity products and botanicals which definitely gives me peace of mind as a mom of 4 (and a dog).

Our Plan with Aptive
We have a four-season plan, which covers us for the year!
- First service: An Aptive service pro checks in, asks about problem areas, and then treats outside and indoors based on what’s best for your home.
- Quarterly Visits: The service pro inspects and spot-treats the yard 30 feet out for a good barrier around the house. They then treat around the foundation + any cracks and crevices. They also knock down any spiderwebs and wasp nests up in the eaves and window sills, so nothing is harboring there. Then on to the inside and the garage!
- In between – If you spot a pest, the specialist will come back for free between regular seasonal visits, no questions asked!
One More Reason to Try Aptive
While I was poking around the Aptive website, I also saw that they partner with the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing but Nets, which fights the spread of malaria by providing treated bed nets to countries most in need. Since 2017, they’ve donated over $1 million, which has provided funds for life-saving nets for 300,000 people.
