There are different control methods to remove pests in your home which includes bedbugs and ants.
Cultural Control– this is talking about the general ways of management ways or options that can be done and followed by agricultural producers to achieve a purpose in crop production. They are things done in the environment or by the environment to increase crop production.
Cultural control can also be a deliberate change in the production system of different crops so that it can be able to decrease the population of pests like bedbugs and ants. and avoid damage by pests to the crops.
Ethological Control– It is the use of pest insect capture techniques through which the behavior and life habits of the insect are used to control them. In fruit flies, the eating habits they possess are taken advantage of, especially of females that ingest substances rich in proteins and are attracted to nitrogenous – ammonia substances.
From a practical point of view, ethological control applications include the use of sexual, food, and visual attractants in traps.
Biological Control– It is the repression of pests through their natural enemies; that is, through the action of predators, parasites, and pathogens. The parasites of pests, also called parasitoids, are insects that live at the expense of another insect (host) which they progressively devour until causing death.
During that time, they complete their larval development. Predators are insects or other animals that kill pests (victims or prey) more or less quickly.
Chemical Control– This method rapidly and drastically reduces populations of fruit flies through the use of chemicals. It is essential to take into account the opportune moment to apply this type of control.
For the chemical control of fruit flies, the following are used:
Toxic Bait: The mixture of insecticide, food attractant (hydrolyzed protein), and water, which is sprinkled with a focal point to the foliage of the fruit trees. Some products are only mixed with water.
