What is Pest Control

By ALBA Oneal Subscribe to RSS | July 24th 2012 | Views:

Pest control refers to the regulation or management of a species defined as a pest , usually because it is perceived to be detrimental to a person's health , the ecology or the economy. Pest control is at least as old as agriculture , as there has always been a need to keep crops free from pests. Techniques such as crop rotation , companion planting also known as intercropping or mixed cropping , and the selective breeding of pest-resistant cultivars have a long history.

In the UK, following concern about animal welfare, humane pest control and deterrence is gaining ground through the use of animal psychology rather than destruction. However, in rural areas of Britain, the use of firearms for pest control is quite common. Air guns are particularly popular for control of small pests such as rats, rabbits and grey squirrels. Because of their lower power they can be used in more restrictive spaces such as gardens, where using a firearm would be unsafe.

Many pests have only become a problem because of the direct actions of humans. Modifying these actions can often substantially reduce the pest problem. Elimination of breeding grounds Proper waste management and drainage of still water, eliminates the breeding ground of many pests. Communities that have proper garbage collection and disposal, have far less of a problem with rats, cockroaches, mosquitoes, flies and other pests than those that don't.

Biological pest control is the control of one through the control and management of natural predators and parasites. Living organisms evolve and increase their resistance to biological, chemical, physical or any other form of control. Most household pests are little more than nuisances, but there are a few types that can completely destroy your home. Not every home is going to have a pest problem, but it's better to take preventative measures than to wait for something to happen. Pest control services will help you to protect the structure of your home and prevent those icky crawling insects from infiltrating your house.
