Homeowners and gardeners are becoming increasingly eco-conscious and are willing to pay more for natural animal repellent products that ensure safety for their plants, pets and children
Oakland, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/10/2015 -- Retailers in the home-and-garden and farm markets are between a rock and a hard place these days when it comes to their customers' pest animal problems. Pest animals and rodents are constantly taking up residence in gardens and homes, but homeowners are rejecting traditional animal repellent products that contain toxic ingredients. Retailers need to stock effective solutions, but also provide for the growing request for natural repellent products.
U.S. consumers are becoming increasingly eco-conscious and are proving it with their retail spending habits. According to a survey by the market research company Nielsen, a quarter of US consumers said they would purchase a green or natural product over a toxic chemical-based product even if it cost them more money.
- Homeowners and gardeners want the products they use to be safe for the environment. They prefer to eliminate pest animals, that include cats, squirrel, rabbits, deer, mice and rats, by using "green" solutions. They are willing to pay more for eco-friendly products.
- It is estimated that more than 30% of Americans have a rodent problem each year. Most will choose a retail solution before hiring an exterminator. They want that retail product to be eco-friendly, effective and easy to use. Cost is often secondary.
- The natural home and garden products market is growing 25% faster than the toxic products market.
