Prevention is better than cure and fits perfectly in the case of pests. If preventions are well-followed pests can be controlled before the infestation take place. 

Pests’ termination is necessary but what if the solution itself becomes a problem for our health? Chemicals are similar they will solve the pest problems but also initiate the other health problem. Organic/natural pesticides and solutions are best in this case.
