A pest control employee is also known as an exterminator. Exterminators visit businesses and customer homes to check for rodents or insects. They then utilize the right technique to eliminate or get rid of the pest, whether it be a poison, trap, or some other method. While most companies do use exterminators in this capacity, not all do.

For instance, in Florida, pest control technicians are employed by the Department of Agriculture to handle issues involving swarms of flying insects, like the common bean worm. The state’s Department of Business and Professional Regulations requires an Insect Management Specialist (IMS) to be on duty at a facility receiving or delivering food from a crop. It is also the responsibility of the IMS to prepare and implement a method of destroying or removing the pests and to train facility personnel such as food service managers, in ways to avoid damage to the crop and to limit damage to customers. The IMS is also responsible for following the proper procedures to safely remove, dispose of, and replace any insecticides used on a facility’s crop.
In most cases, however, pest control technicians are employed only when agriculture is prevalent. Florida, for example, has long had a problem with swarms of killer ants, and while it’s been difficult to eradicate completely, especially during droughts, they’ve been able to make strides toward controlling the population of these aggressive insects.
