You may consider your property or business to be your most valuable asset. Having unwanted pests in your home or workplace can create an unsafe environment. Keeping your property pest-free and disease-free is possible with proper pest control and management.
What is Pest Control?
Infestations are diagnosed by pest control experts based on the source, severity, and location of the infestation. Besides understanding the life cycle of pests, they know what natural factors might encourage their growth inside and around your property. An expert pest control technician will then suggest safe, eco-friendly pesticides that are suitable for your specific pest issue. To eliminate existing pest issues, the technician will treat affected areas following the agreement of a treatment plan.
What is Pest Management?
A pest management program identifies factors that may lead to future pest infestations to prevent these problems. Professional pest companies will recommend behavioural changes (e.g. cleaning surfaces, removing open food sources, disposing of rubbish surrounding a property), or, in some cases, apply a natural solution or chemical as an added preventative measure. It may be necessary to conduct follow-up inspections and treatments to prevent future pest infestations.
Difference Between Pest Management and Pest Control
The goal of pest control is to eliminate infestations after they have already occurred, whereas pest management seeks to eliminate water, food, and shelter sources to limit a pest’s survival and reproduction.
In contrast to pest control, pest management is a continuous process that prevents pest issues from arising in the first place. Whether you are a home or business owner, pest management can provide peace of mind about insects or other pests in your space, as well as prevent recurring infestations.
