Pest control refers to the regulation or management of another species defined as a pest, usually because it is believed to be detrimental to a person's health, the ecology or the economy.
Pest management is at least as old as agriculture. In order to maximize food production, it can be economically advantageous to protect crops from competing species of plants, as well as from herbivores competing with humans.
The conventional approach was probably the first to be employed, since it is comparatively easy to destroy weeds by burning them or plowing them under, and to kill larger competing herbivores, such as crows and other birds eating seeds. Techniques such as crop rotation, companion planting, also known as intercropping or mixed cropping, and the selective breeding of pest-resistant cultivars also have a long history.
Many pests have only become a problem because of the
direct actions of humans. Modifying these actions can often substantially reduce
the pest problem. In the USA, raccoons caused a nuisance by tearing open refuse
sacks. Many householders introduced bins with locking lids, which deterred the
raccoons from visiting. House flies tend to accumulate wherever there is human
activity and is virtually a global phenomenon, especially where food or food
waste is exposed. Similarly, Seagulls have become a pest at many seaside
resorts. Tourists would often feed the birds with scraps of fish and chips, and
before long, the birds would become dependent on this food source and act
aggressively towards humans. Therefore we need a solid integrated pest
management or pest control
Termites are one of the most destructive pests in the family of
insects. They are a major concern to homeowners because they feed on
wooden structures and the like, damage walls from the inside, plus, they
are especially adept at hollowing out things made of wood. In a nutshell,
their ravaging effect is immeasurable.
Bed bugs is another common problem in houses.
In view of complication of the termites, we need a total termite treatment solution.
