Hawx Pest Control is expanding its green smart program, which is working to improve the environment by switching the company to hybrid vehicles.
The Odgen, Utah-based company says it is “committed to being an industry leader in using hybrid vehicles” in its fleet. The company is also known for its partnership with One Tree Planted, which planted a tree for every new customer it signed in the second quarter of 2022.
With offices in 29 cities, Hawx Pest Control covers a lot of ground each year while serving customers throughout the U.S. Converting to a new hybrid fleet is expected to reduce the tailpipe exhaust of dangerous gasses that cause lung and heart diseases. Tailpipe gasses typically include carbon dioxide, nitrous oxides, hydrocarbons, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter and ozone.
“Thirty-three percent of our current fleet of service vehicles are hybrid vehicles and should be at 66 percent by the end of August. Our fleet of hybrid vehicles is one of the largest by percentage among the top pest control companies,” said Brad Pitts, COO of Hawx Pest Control. “This is one more step in the direction of choosing more efficient ways to accomplish our goal of elevating the customer experience with Hawx Pest Control.”
The commitment to reducing tailpipe exhaust gasses coincides with the One Tree Planted initiative to make the air cleaner and healthier to breathe in the cities and municipalities the company serves. Hawx Pest Control also participates in Bayer’s “Feed A Bee” program, which is designed to increase the forage and habitats bees need to survive. “Bees are essential in pollinating plants necessary for human survival,” according to the news release.
“Hawx is committed to having a positive impact in the communities we serve. We reaffirm our commitment through extensive training programs for our Hawx team members, our product selection, technology development, and the care that we take in providing quality pest control services for homes and businesses around the country,” Pitts also said in the news release.
