Regular methods used for pest extermination

  1. Chemical and Organic Sprays: – They are made from organic and chemical resources to eliminate and kill insects. It is the oldest process exercised and is labour-intensive work. The Spray process is dangerous because there are high chances of being in contact with chemicals that can cause allergies to the person.
  2. Fumigation: – This process uses a machine to release gas/smoke that kills bacteria, germs, and insects. It shows effective results in enclosed spaces. It helps to kill mosquitoes and germs and sanitize the area.
  3. Traps: – As the name suggests a trap is set up to catch hold of an insect. We lay a trap where the insects land on and get stuck. Later the trappings are thrown or re-used based on usability. Rats, mice, lizards, etc, are caught using this process.

Types of pest prevention

  1. Physical Barriers:- This process involves physical activity and ensures the pests are outside the house, meaning net doors and regular cleaning is performed. It is one of the oldest process practised to ensure hygiene. 
  2. Repellents:- This process includes chemicals and organic resources. These repellents eliminate small insects like mosquitoes, lizards, and other pests from entering the area. For Eg. We use Odomos and a similar product to ensure mosquitoes do not bite.  
  3. Sanitation:- Sanitation is one of the most essential aspects of pest prevention. It helps in cleaning spills like food and drinks. There are higher chances of being in contact with pests resulting in an increase in their count if the sanitization process is avoided.

Can you opt for organic pest management instead of traditional pest control treatments?

In the present situation, some companies practice both organic and chemical pest treatment. Organic pest control is beneficial because it is environmentally friendly and reduces health diseases. These resources are easily available and are cost-effective. However comparing the effectiveness, we believe chemical solutions can give you an instant and effective solution compared to organic solutions by adopting all the safety measures while using chemicals.

We can opt for traditional pests for plants as it is helpful for the fertility of the soil and provide chemical-free insects on fruits and vegetables. Chemical solutions can be used where fewer people are working.
