General pest control involves identifying the type and source of the pest problem, applying appropriate methods to control or eliminate the pests, and preventing future infestations. Some of the methods used in general pest control are:
– Mechanical: This involves using physical barriers, traps, or devices to exclude or remove pests from an area.
– Biological: This involves using natural enemies, such as predators, parasites, or pathogens, to reduce or eliminate pest populations.
– Chemical: This involves using pesticides, such as insecticides, rodenticides, or herbicides, to kill or repel pests. Chemical methods should be used with caution and in accordance with safety regulations and label instructions.
– Integrated: This involves using a combination of mechanical, biological, and chemical methods to achieve effective and sustainable pest control.
