Pest control can be easy. Sometimes, it may seem as easy as grabbing a newspaper and hitting a fly, or as simple as termite control or bed bugs treatment, but so you thought. Unfortunately, pest control can be beyond your capability—which calls for professional help. Having pest busters eliminate these little nuisances around your house has many advantages. But considering that many homeowners are frugal and practical, how many of you will ask these professionals for help? While D-I-Y pest controls can also get the job done, having pest busters is often a much smarter choice. To weigh out the two options, here are the advantages and disadvantages of both professional and D-I-Y pest control.


D-I-Y Pest control requires fewer materials and equipment; thus, less expense on your part. For example, you won’t need a special protective suit or expensive equipment for simple bed bugs treatment. Nevertheless, you should remember that D-I-Y pest control may not be effective if you don’t know how to do it properly.

Professional Pest Control is more expensive than its counterpart since they use special equipment and materials. Plus, you have to pay for their labor and professional services. However, their professional service is worth what you paid for.


In D-I-Y Pest Control, you don’t have to undergo the transaction’s long and seemingly painful process. You won’t even need to go anywhere far to ask for help.

For Professional Pest Control, it can be such a hassle to call for their help. For one, you will have to search for the right company to deliver proficient and positive results. And it’s no easy job to be looking for that one pest control company as there are many of them available promising almost the same services. However, you can easily find the best provider if you know where to look.


D-I-Y may have made you cut some expenses and avoided the hassle but have they eliminated the pest in your house? Unlikely so. In such difficult situations, that is. You may have driven some of them away but getting rid of them is another story. That’s where D-I-Y pest control lack—efficiency and effectiveness on larger scale damages.

Professional Pest Control yields more noticeable results. With their experience and equipment, a professional team settles the pest problem better than you. Much more experienced exterminators should deal with complex jobs.


D-I-Y is riskier as some insects are too dangerous to be eliminated by a person alone. Some of them are dangerous to one’s health and, in some cases, lethal. Also, there are many reports that people had caused the wreck to their households because they lacked knowledge and experience in pest control.

On the other hand, having professionals take care of your problem will reduce this risk as they will do the job themselves for the homeowner’s safety. Furthermore, they are more knowledgeable in safety precautions and pest control measures.

To conclude, both types of pest control work best depending on the situation. In small-scale infestations, you may do the elimination yourself. But with larger ones that may cause terrible damage, have no second thoughts about calling professional exterminators. Having pest busters do the job is an investment. Because you may be thinking of spending lesser expenses from D-I-Ys, it may also bring higher chances of harm.
