Wasatch Natural Organic Services In The Press
"With World War II came synthetic pesticides like DDT that have lingering harmful effects on the ecosystem. Before synthetic pesticides were developed, pesticides were made from chrysanthemum, soy and other plant roots and botanicals. Alonzo Thayn, owner of Wasatch Natural, is bringing back that old-school method. The 5-year-old company provides organic pest management as well as lawn and tree fertilization. The products are all USDA Organic certified or OMRI listed - designations that Thayn trusts the most. When choosing a green pest management company, he recommends asking for product certifications and not relying strictly on broad definitions of "natural." 801-282-3312, WasatchNatural.com"
"More consumers these days are interested in being more "green," but the recession has made it more difficult for many eco-friendly businesses as financially stressed consumers traded down to cheaper alternatives.
Like other small-business owners at the Live Green festival, however, Alonzo Thayn, owner of Wasatch Natural lawn care and pest control, said business has really picked up in recent months — a sign he hopes is a trickle-down effect now that Utah’s economy is finally on the mend.
"It’s easier to convince people of the benefits of doing things organically now," he said."
