DIY vs. PCO Pest Control

PCO stands for pest control operator and generally refers to someone who works for a commercial pest control company or "exterminator". DIY, as you probably know, means do-it-yourself. Most people, most of the time, can do their own pest control and in many cases can do a safer, better, and certainly more economical job of it. There are a few occasions when you should not attempt to do it yourself (see DIY Pest Control) but for the most part you'll probably do just fine on your own.

Always check the pages of 'Bugs for the relevant topics and send us an e-mail if you get stuck or confused about something. And, always, always take the least-toxic approach!
