Pest Control 101 Various types of pest control techniques part 2

in Pest Control Tips 21/05/2015 | 0 Comments

Looking for ways to control and manage pest infestations in your property? Pioneer Pest Control can help you.

As one of the leading pest control companies, we feel that we have an ethical responsibility to keep you well informed on the various types of pest control techniques, and help you select the best solution to eliminate pests and manage infestations.

There are various types of commercial and home pest control techniques available today, and each one offers advantages and disadvantages. In our previous post, we tackled two of the most common types of pest control techniques: baits and traps. This time, let’s discuss the biological, chemical and natural pest control methods.

Biological Pest


The biological method includes the application of parasites, diseases and predators to control pests or interfere with their ability to propagate. Some biological methods of pest control that are introduced in Australia include: using native fish to feed on the larvae of mosquitoes; utilising dung beetles to break down solid wastes from animals and eliminate the breeding grounds of flies; introducing ladybirds to control pests in citrus and eucalyptus trees; and utilising a group of toxin-producing bacteria known as bacillus thuringiensis serotype israelensis (BTI) to control various species of fungus gnats, mosquitoes and blackflies while having almost no negative effect on other organisms.

Natural Pest Control


One method to deal with the outbreak of bed bugs, mosquitoes, cockroaches and other insects is to make use of natural repellents. These are extracted from plants that have insect-repellent properties, such as: coriander (for mites and aphids); chrysanthemums (for ants, roaches, ticks, fleas and bed bugs); basil (for flies and mosquitoes) and eucalyptus (for flies, dust mites and mosquitoes).


This method of pest control involves using insecticides and behavioural modifiers to eliminate infestations.  Some examples of behavioural modifiers are: attractants, anti-oviposition and anti-feedants.  Chemical pest control that is carried out intelligently can be both effective and safe. Hence, it is extremely important that users should have the skills and knowledge of the type, mode of action and components of the pesticides in order to come up with a successful pest management solution that is suitable for a particular set of circumstances.

By learning these various types of pest control methods, you can find the ideal option that best fits the circumstance or particular type of infestation in your property.
