Your property or business may be your most prized possession. When unwanted pests wreak havoc on your home or place of work, your environment could become unsafe. Proper pest control and management can help keep your property enjoyable, safe, and disease- and pest-free.

What is Pest Control?

Pest control experts determine the source and severity of the infestation and where the pests are breeding and living. They understand the life cycle of pests, and which natural factors both inside and around your property might be encouraging their growth. A professional pest control technician will then suggest services available for your specific pest issue, which should include safe, eco-friendly pesticides. Once a treatment plan has been agreed upon, the technician will then treat affected areas to eliminate existing pest issues.

What is Pest Management?

Pest management is professional care that prevents potential pest problems by identifying factors that may lead to future infestation. Professional companies will recommend lifestyle changes (e.g. removing open food sources, cleaning surfaces, clearing garbage surrounding a property), and, if necessary, apply a chemical or natural solution as an additional preventative measure. Follow-up inspections and treatments may be required to prohibit additional pest issues.

Their Differences

While pest control is a treatment that should eliminate infestation after it has already occurred, pest management seeks to limit the survival and reproduction of potential pests by removing sources of water, food, and shelter.

Pest control is typically a one-time treatment; pest management can be ongoing to prevent pest issues before they occur. Pest management is a valuable service for both home and business owners who have concerns about insects or furry animal pests in the area, and the recurrence of infestation.

When combined, pest control and pest management can create a long-term, effective solution for any pest problem.
