You may have been quite right in assuming that pest control measures would be vastly different if and when applied to both residential and commercial properties. Because of course, residential and commercial tick control westerly environments will not look the same. It might also have been taken for granted that there would be different varieties of pests in such environments. But it cannot be assumed that a little field mouse found in the kitchen is less harmful than, say, a plague of rats in a dockyard.
It cannot be assumed that a single tick discovered on a pet dog’s back can be any less harmful than a nest of ticks found under a stack of wood in a lumber yard. No, by the time the pest control unit arrives at your doorstop, expect the technicians to treat the potential for a tick infestation with equal doses of seriousness. Because if complacency is allowed to take its course, it should not be long before matters get really out of hand. In which case you could be faced with a different kind of lock-down.
This is what is likely to happen if the pest control technicians decide that the residential infestation is that bad. All its inhabitants will need to be evacuated from the premises as soon as possible. They would have to make arrangements to stay at a nearby motel for a few days whilst their place of residence is being fumigated in its entirety. And that, of course, is bound to be rather inconvenient. All customary life must now come to a standstill. And what if you were working from home and needed the use of your workshop, kitchen or home office? Similar principles will certainly apply to residential and commercial pest control.
