What Are the Three Major Methods of Pest Control?

December 24, 2020

Pest control specialists are busy people! There are a few different sides of the industry that we practice to keep homes free and clear from rodents, insects and other pests. Continue reading to learn more about the three methods of pest control in central Illinois and how they can help keep your home safe.


Any existing infestation can be handled with professional extermination services. The way we go about extermination depends on the kind of pest we’re dealing with. For example, we’d probably set mouse traps to get rid of rodents, whereas we’d use insecticides for cockroaches or other insects. Your pest control expert will know the best method for extermination to ensure the pests are gone for good.


Raccoons, opossums and squirrels are just a few of the critters who are known to take up residence in attics or crawl spaces. Insecticides won’t work against these pests, so we’ll set up traps to catch and remove them. It may take a while for us to snag the pest, but rest assured we’ll eventually catch them and carry them away.


The best way to control pests is to prevent them from coming inside in the first place. Regular treatments applied at common entry points around your home can ward off insects and rodents. While there are products you can buy at the hardware store for DIY treatment, it’s best to hire a pro. Our professional-grade solutions are designed to last, offering long-term protection for your home.
