Structural Pest Control

Structural pest control is the control of household pests (including but not limited to rodents, vermin, and insects), wood-destroying pests, and organisms which may invade households or structures. The practice of structural pest control includes engaging in, offering to engage in, advertising for, soliciting, or the performance of any of the following: identification of infestations; inspection of structures; making inspection reports; recommendations, estimates, and bids; making contracts, or the submitting of bids for, or the performance of any work including the making of structural repairs or replacements, or the use of pesticides, insecticides, rodenticides, fumigants, or allied chemicals or substances, or mechanical devices for the purpose of eliminating, exterminating, controlling or preventing infestations or infections of such pests.

Agricultural Pest Control

Agricultural pest control includes two subcategories. The first is production agriculture, which includes pest control done to produce a commercial agricultural commodity. The second is non-production agriculture, which includes watersheds, rights-of-way, and residential/commercial landscaped areas (golf courses, parks, recreation areas, cemeteries, etc.)
