Homeowners Need Residential Pest Control
Nobody wants a pest infestation that may put their family’s health at risk, or cause huge amounts of property damage.

The Fascinating History of Pest Control
Most people don’t think to ask when residential pest control first emerged. And for those that don’t know its history, pest control itself might seem like a modern convenience. However, the truth is that pest control as a general practice has been around for thousands of years! For example, records as old as 2500 B.C. reveal that the ancient Sumerians used sulfur in early insect fumigation. What’s just as amazing is that a large number of sulfur-based products are still in use as pesticides today.
The fact of the matter is that pest control has been critical to the success of human society. Since antiquity, civilizations spanning from the Romans to the Chinese used rudimentary pest control to protect crops like dates. Millennia later, pest control, whether in the form of pesticides or biological solutions, has enabled a global agricultural explosion. It’s fair to say that there wouldn’t be nearly as many people around without pest control to protect our crops.
But residential pest control has a long history too. The ancient Egyptians, for instance, are believed to have let mongooses into their homes as a form of rodent control. Not to mention, we all know that cats love to hunt down mice—the ancient Greeks and Romans did too. And in the 20th century, as agricultural pest control grew into a booming industry, the formal practice of structural pest control was introduced to homes.
