The Truth About Which Pest Control Products Are Best...

Everybody wants to know which pest control products work the best? But the reality is this: most pest control products on the market work extremely well independent of human and environmental variables. Although there can be efficacy differences with respect to how different products and/or different active ingredients might impact a given pest population, the end result differences are far more a reflection of how well the pest control applicator works as opposed to how well the pesticide product itself works. 

In other words, an experienced pest professional equipped with just one approved pesticide product of any formulation (labeled for that particular pest) is considerably more likely to quickly resolve a given pest infestation than a novice do-it-yourselfer equipped with every product on the market. So a lot of products are really, really good. And yes, there are some substandard pest control products that don't stack up favorably

At Pest Control Everything, our reviews of products are based predominantly on our first-hand experience using the products in various professional settings over a 20 year span, along with independent research and continuing education. When rating pest control products, we typically look at the product through a comprehensive lens encompassing several factors. To some extent we take for granted that the products we recommend do indeed work. What makes one product better than another similar product is often how well the applicator is able to utilize it. 

Our mission is to provide a well-rounded perspective that enables our visitors to perform educated, effective, pest control applications in a safe and responsible manner. 

Professor Pest Recommends Professor Pest Says: 

Simply purchasing products that are highly rated by novice pest controllers may not necessarily translate into success for you. Every pest situation is unique. For best results with any pest control product, due diligence on the front end can make all the difference in what kind of results you achieve.
