pest control

Pest control describes chemical, physical or biological measures to control plant or animal pests which afflict domestic animals and human beings, their dwellings, workplaces and supplies to ensure hygiene, to avoid personal injury and to prevent damage to property.

Solutions include making changes to landscaping or interior design, installing screens on windows, adding sweeps to the bottom of doors and altering cleaning procedures. Where further pest reduction is necessary, long-term solutions are given priority over regular treatment.
