What does pest control do?
Termites return nutrients to the soil by breaking down dead wood, wasps pollinate plants and flowers, and mice and ants are scavengers and food for other animals. These creatures all serve a purpose in our ecosystem, but that doesn’t mean you want to share your living space or workplace with them. Pest control involves eliminating any of these pests from your home or business and preventing new infestations from occurring.
