Organic Pest Control

An organic or natural method is usually preferred by those who want to constrain the damage caused by small animals and insects as well as ensure the safety of their kids, pets, and plants. In this case, you might want to use bait, trap, or spray. You can add poison in your bait; otherwise, insecticidal soap, oil, sprays, etc.

Chemical Pest Control

Some organic treatments do not produce an effective result, which is why some opt for chemical pest control. You can find thousands of chemical products available for use in both residential and commercial properties. These can be in a form of solids, liquid, or aerosols. However, keep in mind that some chemical products are very dangerous for humans and other living organisms.

Biological Pest Control

Biological is the method of using living organisms for the sole purpose of controlling the vermin population. What makes it popular is the fact that biological pest control (or bio-effector) is chemical-free and extremely beneficial. It can control insect populations, mites, etc.
