– infestation by cockroaches, bedbugs or termites,

– wasp nests placed in difficult places,

– presence of stagnant water leading to a proliferation of mosquitoes.

Pest control company: interventions for communities

As far as professionals or communities are concerned, pest control companies often intervene within the framework of a 1, 3 or 5-year contract, setting up a preventive and curative program to fight against all pests.
