Today, exterminators have an army of potential options for combating pests of all shapes and sizes. Different tools and methods work well against different pests, so it’s important for an exterminator to have extensive training about all of the available methods.

Some of the most popular pest elimination methods include:

Traps Both kill and no-kill traps are available. Traps are mostly effective against small infestations and are not designed for elimination of large pest populations. Variations include catch-and-release traps, spring-loaded traps (traditional mouse trap), sticky traps and electronic traps. Spring-loaded, electronic and multi-catch traps are most commonly used for rodents and snakes, while sticky traps are effective against a wide range of insects. Visual traps that use light to attract pests are effective against many types of insects as well.

Baited traps This method involves placing poison bait in a bait station that permits a pest to enter. The idea is that the pest will consume the poison and then leave the area.

Poison Spray – Poisoned spray is ideal for situations in which pests are confined to a specific area. It is commonly used to exterminate insects.

Fumigation Fumigation is the process of sealing off a structure and filling it with poison gases or pesticides. If it’s feasible to seal off an entire house, this method can tackle large areas quickly and easily. It is used for everything from spiders to flying insects.
