MANAGED PEST SOLUTIONS
At Versacor, we do more than just eliminate pests. We manage your program for quality, consistency and long-term results. In delivering a Managed Pest Solution, we start with the total elimination of existing pest activity, but we don’t stop there. We set up a proactive program to monitor for newly introduced pests, eliminate these pests in an environmentally friendly way using our EcoGuard® service and prevent reoccurrences by making your facility less conducive to pest infestations. Then, your account is actively managed through our Quality Management program to ensure we are meeting your expectations and that you are fully protected. A Managed Pest Solution—we manage the program so you can get on with running your business.
We believe that a successful pest program should not have to rely on excessive applications of pesticides. Our EcoGuard® service was developed because of the need for a safer, more effective means of eliminating pests while minimizing the use of pesticides. To achieve this, we take a holistic approach that focuses on exclusion, pest pressure monitoring, and specific, targeted pesticide applications, but only when a problem has been detected. And when we need to make applications, pesticide selection is always based on these three criteria:
1. Lowest hazard to humans
2. Lowest environmental impact
3. Maximum effectiveness against the target pest
VERSACOR ENTERPRISES, LLC is dedicated to providing outstanding service to every customer, every time. That’s simply the way we do business. Our company is built on a foundation of five core values:
1. Corporate Responsibility
2. Environmental Stewardship
3. Quality in Everything We Do
4. Commitment to our Associates
5. Value through Innovation
“To protect the health, property and reputation of our clients.” Our Mission was developed to express the reason we exist. Our success will ultimately be measured by how true we stay to our mission. These are our promises:
• Provide value-added solutions that will protect our clients' reputations and livelihoods
• Maintain a culture of innovation, working to continuously improve our effectiveness and efficiency
• Deliver our services and operate our business in a manner that safeguards the environment

Our EcoGuard® service philosophy expresses our dedication to environmental responsibility, incorporating a continuing reduction in pesticide usage as stipulated by the EPA’s (Environmental Protection Agency) Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program (PESP) and an integrated pest management approach that supports the U.S. Green Building Council program, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

And with minimal pesticide exposure, we provide you, your employees and your customers with a healthier environment. This is all part of our EcoGuard® service.
Our commitment to the environment actually goes beyond pesticides though. Our corporate office building, constructed in 2016, was built with sustainability in mind. It not only meets all of the environmental regulations and green building practices as determined by the current building codes, but it goes a step further with all LED interior and exterior lighting, general and hazardous recycling programs, electric heat pump technology and more. Our promotional materials are printed on recycled or post-consumer recycled paper, and recycling is a standard practice within our organization. Even the rodent bait stations we use are manufactured out of 100% recycled plastic and shipped on 100% recycled pallets.
