Pest control refers to the management and elimination of unwanted insects and other organisms that can cause damage or harm to people, animals, and property.
There are various methods of pest control, including chemical pesticides, biological methods, and mechanical traps. Chemical pesticides involve the use of chemicals to eradicate pests, while biological methods rely on using natural predators, parasites, or pathogens to control pests. Mechanical traps involve physically capturing pests through methods such as glue traps, snap traps, or insect lights.
Effective pest control requires understanding the biology and behavior of pests, as well as implementing measures to prevent their entry and reproduction. Common pests that require pest control include rodents, insects, termites, bedbugs, and birds.
Proper pest control practices help protect public health by reducing the risk of disease transmission and preventing damage to structures and property. It is important to use environmentally friendly and safe pest control methods to minimize the impact on the ecosystem and avoid harmful exposure to humans and animals.
