Goodbye Termites, Ants, and Roaches

FAQS About Common Pests And Pest Control Services

Pest control is important for any homeowner who doesn't want to be bothered by insects in the home. When it comes to pest control, you may wonder what exactly is it?

Pest control encompasses a wide range of services, so before calling for help, look over these FAQs about pest control services.

What Are The Types Of Pest Control?

The services a pest control company provides depend on the homeowner's situation, and sometimes, the companies' specialties. While one company may only provide services or insect control, another may provide control of rodents.

Three basic types of pest control exist. 

Extermination: The pest control company uses sprays and/or other methods to rid your home of common insect pests: cockroaches, ants, earwigs, etc.

Pest Removal: Pest control companies use removal services for small rodents and other pests. Some examples include snakes, mice, voles, and raccoons.

Pest Prevention: Prevention means steps you can take to get pests away. A pest control company can also provide prevention tips and services.

When looking for a service for pest control, consider the type of pest, so you find the best service for your needs.

What Pest Are Included In Control Services?

Pests are any unwanted insect or animal that invades your home or other structures. Insects are one of the most common types of pests. Pest control services can spray to exterminate most insect pests like:

  • Spiders
  • Ants
  • Cockroaches
  • Earwigs
  • Moths
  • Silverfish
  • Crickets

Pest control services can't exterminate all pests. Small rodents and animals must be dealt with differently than insects.

Pests that require traps and other methods of removal include:

  • Mice
  • Raccoons
  • Squirrels
  • Voles
  • Skunks
  • Snakes
  • Opossums

Animal pests find shelter in a home's crawlspace, attic, and other nooks and crannies of the home. A pest control service must trap and release these pests back into the wild.

Are There Other Types Of Pests?

Some pests are more outdoor pests. They don't invade the home, usually, but build nests or shelters near your home.

Some of these pests include:

  • Bees
  • Wasps
  • Pigeons
  • Hornets
  • Mosquitoes
  • Flies

Sometimes pest control involves relocation. Honeybees and wasps are beneficial, so sometimes pest services use methods to make them move to a new location.

The key to safe and effective pest control is understanding what type of pest you have and finding a service specializing in exterminating or relocating them.

A simple call to your local pest control companies can help you find the best one for your needs.
