Pest control is a matter of human health and comfort (mosquito control, bedbugs, fleas and lice, control and treatment of bedbugs, control of head lice). A "pest" is any insect, rodent, or wildlife that is considered undesirable because they either invade people's homes or businesses, causing damage or heightening the risk of communicating a disease or illness. So pest control services would be the process of managing (by using deterrents or repellents) or removing pests from the house or place of business.
