Pests can disrupt the peace of your home and commercial space. Whether you’re dealing with a full-blown infestation or just a few unwelcome visitors that persistently appear, pest control services are essential. Nevertheless, understanding the distinction between residential and commercial pest management is crucial prior to seeking assistance from an exterminator!

Commercial pest control is usually more expensive than residential.

The cost of commercial pest control is usually more expensive than the cost for residential. This is because commercial pest control is usually contracted by businesses and larger establishments, whereas residential is done in homes.

There are some cases where you can find a commercial exterminator to do the work for less money than their residential counterparts ( it will depend on your location), but most of the time this isn’t true.

Residential pest control is usually easier to schedule.

The scheduling for residential pest control is usually much easier than commercial because of the fact that it’s done in homes, whereas commercial may be contracted out by businesses and larger establishments. This is because it takes a lot of more resources and manpower to get the job done for commercial.

Residential pest control is usually contracted out by a single person and they come to your home when you need them, whereas with commercial it may be harder because of scheduling issues and manpower needed.

Commercial and residential pest control requires different equipment

Commercial and residential pest control requires different equipment because of the fact that commercial usually deals with larger buildings, whereas residential is done in homes. Commercial pest control may need to cover larger areas in order to get the job done, whereas residential usually only needs to deal with a specific area.

This is why commercial requires different equipment when it comes time for an exterminator to do their work!

Commercial pest control services handle larger infestations.

Commercial pest control is usually needed when there are more pests than usual or a large-scale issue has occurred. This is because commercial exterminators are usually contracted by larger establishments or companies, which means they have the manpower and resources to handle large-scale infestations.

For example, a business may have an issue with rodents and hire a commercial exterminator to handle the problem. Residential pest control, on the other hand, is usually done in homes and is smaller-scale.

Commercial pest control are usually done more frequently.

Commercial exterminators will need to come in and do prevention work more often than residential, because commercial establishments tend to attract pests much faster than homes due to the type of business they’re running.

For example, a restaurant may have an ongoing issue with rodents or cockroaches that results in needing an exterminator to come in every few months, whereas a home may only need an exterminator once or twice per year.

Commercial pest management are usually tailored to the client.

Commercial exterminators will often customize their service based on what their client needs, whereas residential pest control is done for an entire house or apartment complex rather than specific clients. For example, a commercial exterminator may do scheduled work for an office building but also customize the service agreement to fit their client’s needs.

On the other hand, residential pest control services are usually done in homes or apartment complexes rather than specific clients.

Commercial pest control is more complex than residential

Commercial pest control is usually more complex than residential, because commercial pest control services are done for larger areas or more specific clients. This means the exterminator will have to do a thorough job of getting rid of pests in order to keep their client happy and prevent re-infestations.

Residential services usually consist of treating one home at a time rather than many buildings on different properties, which makes residential simpler.

Which Pest Control is Right for You?

In the end, it’s up to you and your needs as a customer which type of pest control is right for you. Commercial services are usually more expensive but can handle larger infestations or clients better than residential. Residential services cost less money but will also likely take longer due to their smaller scale nature.

In Conclusion

No matter what you choose, be sure to ask a professional whether commercial or residential is the right choice for you.
