Pest Control vs. Extermination: What’s the Difference?

When it comes to successfully removing insects and animals from your property, do you know whether pest control vs. extermination is best? Far too often, people choose a company based on price without understanding whether or not their method is the most effective at permanently eliminating their pest problem. To help you make a better-informed decision when you’re faced with an infestation, we’ll explain the key differences between the two and which one has better results.

Integral Pest Services is a new kind of pest control, we are redefining how the pest control industry should be. 


Extermination targets and kills pests through chemical treatment methods. This can involve the use of insecticides or chemical sprays that poison the pest, along with their eggs and nest. In order for this method to work, the treatment needs to come into direct contact with the insects. While this may provide reasonable results for certain species that are visible in plain sight, it doesn’t target pests that typically hide out in cracks and crevices, such as bed bugs and cockroaches. Extermination also has another downfall. It rarely prevents pests from returning since it relies solely on removal and not control. So if your home or business still has points of entry that are allowing the pests to gain access, the problem will likely persist until they are sealed up.

Pest Control

Pest control is a form of extermination, but it includes prevention and monitoring. It begins with locating the pests, including their nest and eggs, and identifying the source of entry. Then recommendations are provided to stop them from coming back once the treatment has been applied. This could involve filling holes in the foundation or adding netting on top of vents that lead to the outdoors. In addition to being a more effective and permanent treatment, pest control is also better for your family and the environment. It can combine a variety of different methods, such as traps, nets, chemicals, bioinsecticides, heat treatments and other effective techniques that will produce a successful, permanent solution. They’ll arrange a follow-up inspection and monitoring program if needed to ensure any stubborn pests don’t return.
