Is Eating Bugs Considered Pest Control?

While stuffing your stomach full of bugs is not a technique we use or recommend to get rid of bugs, the tactic could technically be labeled as pest control. And possibly a more accepted approach in other parts of the world. (Note: Nausea or illness may occur while eating insects.)

Pest control is defined as the regulation or management of pests in designated location. So, controlling the bug population on your property by means of ingesting bugs does in fact count as a form of regulation.

However, in the United States having a pest exterminator apply pesticides to infested areas is a more effective & popular approach to eliminating bugs. But this is not the only way to keep bugs out of our homes.

As stated above, pest control is the regulation & management of pests, so controlling pests is not all about sprays & traps. More accurately, pest control is the elimination of bugs and their food, water, and shelter sources. Considering all of these elements when attempting to eradicate pests will strengthen your efforts & make for a successful pest control plan.

Getting rid of the food & water sources for bugs alone will make your property a significantly less desirable place for insects to nest. Depleting pest living spaces hinders reproduction & furtiveness thus reducing the pest population.

Here are a few techniques you can use to accomplish these goals:

  • Remove mulch, brush, grass, or wood piles
  • Tidy garden areas & pick up dead leaves, flowers and fruit
  • Clear any standing water in yard & clean out gutters
  • Thoroughly clean areas with food
  • Clean up all liquid spills & food crumbs
  • Keep food & waste in secure containers

This way pest will be gone for good & having a pest smorgasbord will not be necessary regardless of what part of the world you live.

We exterminate your current pest infestation & your pest control efforts will assist in keeping bugs gone for good.
