Overall, there are two types of pest control; biological and chemical. Biological control involves the use of a pest’s natural biological enemies, like predators and parasites, to control pests. Chemical control (the most popular form) is the use of natural or synthetic chemicals to control pests. Whether we own a commercial building or a residence, there are several benefits, but some disadvantages of pest control.
Our home is a sacred place. We take pride managing it to be a clean, peaceful environment for our loved ones. Having seasonal pest control is very important because it helps reduce illness, cleaning duties, and it makes us sleep better at night. Today, insect bites are major causes of illness. Rodent feces can cause illness when they come in contact with food. One major advantage is that illness is reduced in the home where pests are controlled. Rodent droppings can be a menace and particularly when they have access to your home, they can destroy anything in sight. This would mean that your cleaning activities in the home will decrease. Sleep is essential to every human being, but the cohabitation of pests can ruin it. The buzz of insects and the movement of rodents would definitely reduce your chances of getting a good sleep, but when you control pests, you sleep better.
The most popular method of controlling pests is the use of pesticides, however, using pesticides in the home can have outrageous consequences. Pesticides are generally poisonous, which raises a lot of health concerns. Particularly, homes with anyone with diseases and/or health conditions will be disadvantaged because the risk of inhaling toxins can cause more issues.
Anyone who owns a business knows that safety is the number one priority to keep all employees and customers out of harm’s way. Having regular pest control maintenance can help increase business activities and save your business from property damage. If pests invade a business, customers and employees alike will flee. However, when pests are controlled, customers will have greater confidence in coming to your business and employees will feel safe in their working environment. Pests, like termites, will eat through wood and destroy all building furniture in sight. When pests are controlled, the property is saved from destruction. If pesticides come in contact with human skin and food, this can be a hazard. Customers and employees are also exposed to inhaling poisonous toxins from the chemicals used for extermination by the technicians.

So, if whether you decide or not, I think it is very valuable!
