Do-it-yourself pest control, or DIY pest control, is becoming increasingly popular.  Approximately 65% of all pest elimination occurs in the residential sector.  Since the recession, more households and businesses have switched to products that are publicly available online and in retail stores.  There are several explanations for this trend:

  • DIY pest control is typically more affordable
  • DIY pest control products are easy to operate and easy to install
  • DIY pest control products require little to no maintenance
  • DIY products tend to be eco-friendly and humane, due to regulation of chemical pesticides sold to the public
