Pest control is nothing but a process of controlling the pests that have serious and harmful impacts on humans. Eradication is the better way of controlling the pests, since it involves the complete prohibition of pests. The human beings need to take several preventive measures, in order to control the pests. We all know that mosquitoes are the major means of several diseases (especially fevers) in human beings. While coming to mosquito control, the two most effective ways include the usage of mosquito coils and bio control mechanisms. Such bio control mechanisms include the introduction of several predators, pathogens and parasites into the areas accumulated by mosquitoes. Another efficient way of reducing the mosquito population is the introduction of fungi species like Beauvoir bassiana and Metarhizium anisopliae.
