Pest control and animal control are two different fields that deal with different types of creatures and issues.
Pest control is focused on managing and preventing infestations of insects and other small pests, such as rodents, termites, bedbugs, and cockroaches. Pest control technicians typically use various methods such as baits, traps, and chemical treatments to eliminate or control the population of these pests. They may work in residential or commercial settings, such as homes, hotels, restaurants, and warehouses.
On the other hand, animal control deals with larger animals, such as stray dogs, cats, raccoons, skunks, and even wildlife like deer and bears. Animal control officers are responsible for enforcing laws and regulations related to animal welfare, such as capturing and removing stray animals, managing animal populations, investigating animal abuse or neglect cases, and ensuring public safety from dangerous animals.
In summary, pest control primarily focuses on managing small pests and insects, while animal control focuses on managing larger animals and enforcing laws related to animal welfare.
