Sanitation

The “bottom line” to long term control is the fact that pest must have adequate food and shelter to live and thrive. The removal of these factors alone via sanitation practices will have tremendous impact in reducing pest population, However to control pest, without any attempt to eliminate their food and shelter via sanitation, pest populations can quickly and repeatedly rebound. Therefore, sanitation is the backbone of a successful or failure of the pest control program.
