Toxic chemicals are dangerous – for humans, animals and our environment. Some common pesticides have been linked to bee colony collapse, a significant threat to our food supply. My goal was, and is, to find natural, non-toxic, products to “safely” address farm and livestock insect infestations. That’s why I founded Terregena Inc.” Jim Skinner
Jim Skinner CEO Founder Terregena
My education has been in the human health sciences. My life’s work and focus have been on combating diseases. I have managed existing companies and started new ones, many having an amazing, positive impact on the health and welfare of people around the world.
In the mid-2000s, toxic chemicals were the only method available to control insects in barns, farms, and other agricultural facilities. The effect of these poisons on animals, humans, the food we eat, and bee colonies was and still is devastating and deadly. Even worse, after spraying these poisons, visible insects would die but there was little effect on the “unhatched” eggs, larvae, and pupae, that were waiting to emerge.
In 2005, I was presented with the opportunity to bring a new, safe, and organic insect pest control technology to the agricultural community. This brand new technology involved safe, non-toxic, and very effective biopesticides. The range of products based the technology could be used to specifically treat and eradicate a particular pest; but, the products would not affect the animals, such as poultry, etc., nor would the products affect beneficial insects, like beneficial insects such as bees.
In 2006, I founded Terregena. We provide safe and organic products to farmers and ranchers who need to protect their animals from the pests that carry diseases and who desire to provide a healthy environment for their animals, and healthy products for human consumption. With the correct use of our products, you gain control over insect pests and then move to a maintenance program that requires less and less product. Our products kill insects at all stages but won’t hurt animals, humans, or the environment.
Terregena is incorporated in both the US and Canada. Our organic products are effective, and economical and commonly found from California to North Carolina and from British Columbia to Newfoundland. We are proud to have repeat customers in the poultry, dairy, swine, bison, cattle, and equine industries.
Pest control is a science, and we have brought the newest biotechnology science to make pest control safe and effective. Thank you for your support of our home-grown company and our mission of gaining control over disease-transmitting pests while eliminating the use of toxic and poisonous chemicals.
