Earth Care
Products:

A NATURAL

WAY

1

Your company sells natural, earth friendly products
that help eliminate odors. Why is it important for pest
control businesses to use natural products?
The pest control industry deals with many types of chemicals. Earth Care is made from a blend of all natural minerals
and the Earth Care Bag does not require registration so it is
easy for a PCO to use our product. They can tell their customers when they leave the Earth Care Bags that they are safe to
use around children and pets. Many of the odor and pollution
control products on the market today act merely as masking
agents. This means they add chemicals to the air to cover up
odors and actually increase the level of indoor pollutants in
the process. Earth Care, on the other hand, truly eliminates
odors and cleans the air by absorbing and neutralizing odors.
Earth Care Products are especially beneficial to those that
suffer from chemical sensitivity which can be aggravated by
fragrances. To dispose of the Earth Care Bags, the contents
can be added to the garden because it is a natural nitrogen
additive or simply placed in the trash.

Your products are manufactured in the USA by special needs adults. Why is that important to you as a
business owner?
We like providing special needs adults the opportunity to
be productive citizens. It helps them with their confidence
and they love working with our products. We feel this is a
great opportunity for our company to serve our community.

How did you become involved in the pest
control industry?
Bill Vaughan, the founder of Earth Care Products, made
a cold call to Gary Atkins (currently employed at Nutrien Ag
Solutions) in 1994 when he was employed at Hicks Farm
Supply in San Marcos, CA. Gary asked if our bags would
work on dead rodent odors. Bill replied that he didn't know.
Still, Gary bought one case of bags, and the following week,
he bought 10 cases! Today we have pest control distribution
(we sell through distributors) in over 40 different countries
and throughout the USA. It is all thanks to Gary!

How did you become involved with PCOC and what
do you value most as a PCOC member?
We decided to exhibit at a PCOC annual convention to grow
our business and joined PCOC. PCOC allows us to educate
PCO's about our products and odor control.

5

What do you see as issues facing PCOs regarding
odors they encounter?
Odor issues can create call backs for PCOs which are costly
as well as inconvenient for their customers. Often the PCO
is not able to locate the decaying rodent. By simply hanging
Earth Care Bags to remove odors, the carcass does not have
to be removed and our product does not have to come into
contact with the carcass. Odor control can also be used to
generate additional income for a PCO. For example, they
can add odor control for trash rooms or odor removal after
clean outs. Many PCOs do not understand the four basic
technologies to remove odors which is why we developed
an one hour technical CEU class to help them understand
what to use and how. Visit www.earthcareproducts.biz for
more information.
