Pest control is an important industry for health and safety, as well as the comfort of the people and industries affected by pests of one form or another. Worldwide, the pest control industry is split into several different segments, each based on a different approach to managing various types of pests. Common pests that require pest control management are bedbugs, cockroaches, termites, and others depending on the world region. From insect repellent worn on the body to insecticides sprayed on crops, from exterminators treating residential and commercial locations to the tent fumigation of entire buildings, the pest control industry is diverse and large.
With increasing demand for bedbug, ant, termite, and mosquito control services in the U.S., the U.S. pest control market continues to grow. As of 2018, U.S. pest control workers found bed bugs in 59 percent of the nursing homes that they checked, as just one example. A city's climate greatly influences how vulnerable it is to pest infestations. Cities in warmer regions face more cases of infestations from insects, as the warm climate allows them to live longer than they would in colder climates.
