Pest Management Facts

Pest control is a scientific and technician specialized use of chemicals, herbicides, and other mechanical controls to kill, stop, or otherwise control domestic pests. Pest Management is one of the authority sites on this topic. The science of pest control contains the principles of chemistry, genetics, ecology, physiology, and behavior. The application of these principles and concepts to produce and result in controlled and eradicated pest populations. Pest control services are often utilized to control the destructive growth of plants and trees and their foliage; animals such as rodents, birds, insects, and microorganisms; and hazardous materials that can be released into the environment or into the air.


There are three major classes of pest control service: insecticide, chemical, and biological. Insecticides are chemical compounds whose effect is to affect the life cycles of the pests. The chemicals employed to destroy pests, such as poisons, are either synthetic or natural. They may also be plant-based compounds that are used to control or eradicate insects, fungi, mites, arthropods, and protozoa.

Biological treatment or simply termed as termite control, uses bactericides and anti-fungal substances that work on invading and destroying the underground structures of the pests and their eggs. Bacterial treatments may include baits, dusts, liquids, topical sprays, or injectables. Anti-fungal substances are those that destroy the enzymes and structures of fungi, which feed on the host tree or plant and cause decay and death of the entire plant. These substances are non-toxic and environmentally safe, and can be purchased at most garden supply stores. A lawn care service that provides these services will be more than happy to provide you with information and answer any questions you might have concerning these products and installation.
