We’ve often found ourselves wondering if there was a difference between an exterminator and a pest control technician. The use of exterminator to define the practice of eliminating pests is still the most common. What was once widely seen as a quick fix, extermination has evolved over time and so has the job title. If you seek the literal definition of either term, it’s likely you’ll find that they are so synonymous that they are used to define each other
Exterminators of the past were known to kill quickly and kill often. There was a simple satisfaction in seeing dead bugs in the home. It was visual proof of the immediate result that people were seeking. Most of the chemicals used were highly toxic, highly flammable, foul smelling, and unsafe. Today, pest control technicians specialize in extermination services. The materials used are safer, less odorous, and just as effective; the job is the same.
