Below we discuss some methods that are commonly used for pest control. The two main divisions are natural and chemical pest control, they are further divided into categories that we will discuss further.

Natural Pest Control:

The first step to pest control is hygiene. Keeping your home or business spaces clean and following basic hygiene is not something to ignore. The first recommendation is to avoid keeping food materials unattended in your home because these are the major attractions for pesticides.

Pesticides can come back if hygiene is ignored after one successful pest control method. While cleaning your place should be enough to avoid any pests, some may still find their way inside your house or commercial space and that is where pest control methods come in.

Biological Methods:

Free from chemicals or highly odourful agents, biological pest control methods use natural methods to control an infestation. The most commonly used method that come under this category are natural predators. This method has been used for centuries in which a naturally existing predator that eats a particular type of pest is used to control the pesticide infestation. A good example for this are lady bugs for the control of aphid infestations or toads that were left in Australia to deduct cane beetles population that were destroying crops in the region.

A symbiotic relationship is found in certain plants and micro-organisms that generate a win-win situation for both species. It is commonly used for pesticide infestations in plants where the plant and micro-organism depend on each other for survival. The micro-organism avoids pests and protects plants by killing any harmful bacteria or fungi.

Physical Methods:

This methods involves physically removing the pest by first catching, then killing and finally removing the source of the spread. It is more suitable for gardens and farms. Pests tend to spread in areas which provide them the most ideal environment for breeding. Eliminating the root of breed can stop the spread of pests. In this case, the most appropriate thing to do is to de-form the environment. A clean, warm and dry place will do you great benefit in most cases.

Poisons come in different types for the control of certain types of pests. They come as granules or gelly form and are placed in areas where pesticides are found. The poison either destroys the pest or takes it back to where it emerged from. However, care is important when using poison and commercial poisons for commercial pest control can be lethal in case of ingestion. Burning of fields to kill the pest by targetting the top layer of the soil where pests grow is a rarely used method now. Other than that, trap cropping involves growth of a decoy crop to which pests are more attracted to to avoid the infestation in the good crops.

Chemical Pest Control:

Chemical pesticides are very effective and reliable for pesticide control. They can eliminate serious pest infestations like rodents as well as insects. These are generally toxic so care should be taken before use. This includes insecticides that are used to kill insects including ants, flies, cockroaches, and lizards, etc. Insecticides are either granulated for crawling insects or liquid sprays for flying insects like flees and mosquitoes etc.

Rodenticides, as the name suggests is also chemical pesticide for rat control. They are the most lethal of the pest control methods and is used to kill mammals ranging from rats, cats and most other scavengers. Caution while using this method is a prerequisite to avoid harming oneself and the surrounding environment.

Mosquitoes, moths, or flying ants are generally killed by fogging through a ULV fogging machine. It does not significantly harm the environment. On the other hand, heat treatment for insects like fleas and bed bugs is the method that’s rapidly gaining popularity. Additionally, another method involving the generation of high temperatures in the infested area to eliminate creepy crawling creatures is being used widely. Fumigation, a nuclear option requires the pesticide spread region to be cleared for about two to three days.

In short, a pest infestation can be easily controlled by contacting a commercial or residential pest control services provider like Orchid Company. We will provide you with a trained team to resolve the issue without causing any harm.
