Pest Control is the regulation or management of a species that is defined as a pest, which impacts human activities. The human’s response depending on the damage done by the pest will range from tolerance, through deterrence and management, to attempts to completely destroy the pest. Pest control measures may be performed as part of an integrated pest management strategy.
Pest Control History:
Pest Control is at least as old as agriculture, as there has always been a need to keep crops free from pests. 3000 BC in Egypt, cats were used to control pests of grain stores such rodents, then ferrets were domesticated by 500 AD in Europe for use as mousers, then mongooses were introduced into homes to control snakes and rodents.
Pest control continued hindered in other civilizations of Asia during the middle ages. Plant extracts such as lemon oil and wormwood and chemicals such as arsenic and sulfur found to use to repel insects. Following the scientific awakening infused by the European Renaissance, people then started developing and created traps for animals after a lot of scientific observations on pets. After a while scientists discovered that nicotine, certain herbs repel insects, and these substances became major pest control instruments of the age. In the renaissance period, pest control required hand labour.
Soon the discovery of mechanical tools made tasks much easier to use. Franz Bruckmann invented the earliest mechanical inspect trap in the early 1700s. After the Second World War, the use of true chemical pesticides stated and nowadays there are hundreds of chemical pesticides available for use in agriculture and horticulture.
Chemical Control: Chemical pesticides are usually used to control diseases, pests or weeds. Chemical control is based on substances that are poisonous to the insects involved. Chemical pesticides are applied to protect plants from pests, diseases or overgrowth by weeds, but of Couse when implementing the pest control the toxic doesn’t affect the plan.
There are different categories of pesticides of course depending on the purpose they are usually applied for. Herbicides which are used against weed, herbicide are taken, up by the leaves and roots of the weed, causing It to die. Then fungicides, which are act against fungi. Insecticides, which destroy the harmful insects. Acaricides which protect plants from mites, and Nematicides to control nematodes that attach the plants.
Biological Control: Biological Controls basically consist of three different parts (Biochemical, Microbial, Macrobial). Biological control is no fad. In the fourth century in China, ants were used as the natural enemy of insects, and still, today ants are still used to control pests and food stores in some cities in China. The usefulness of parasites was discovered later on. As known, most parasites are insects such as parasitic wasps which during the egg, Larva and Pupa stages live in or on a host.
These early stages of these insects were first described in the early 18th century by Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek.
In 1800, Charles Darwin’s father known as Erasmus Darwin, wrote an essay of the useful roles that parasites and predators may play in combating pests and diseases.
Biological control assumes that natural predators or parasites are able to suppress pests. That’s why natural enemies were imported to control the pests. These natural predators were in small numbers, but once they start increasing to a bigger number, here’s when the effect is shown in long term. This method is called inoculation. When the natural predator is introduced periodically, it is known as inundation.
There are two groups that are beneficial microbial organisms, which are predators and parasites.
Some beneficial micro-organisms can also be healthy for plant health and control pests and diseases. Bacteria, fungi and other organisms can have these effects compete for nutrients or space, they can produce antibiotics or they eat harmful micro-organisms.
Other than macro-organisms and micro-organisms, there are a lot of natural resources that people use for control pests and diseases. Biochemical is a very wide category, it includes plant extracts, vitamins and plant hormones. They basically make the plants stronger and healthier. The pheromones are used to lure the pest into a trap.
Pest control is limited to the following pests.
– Crawling insects
– Flying insects
Bees, Rodent control, Bed bugs, Silverfish, Termites, Bird lice, Dead animals, Snakes, Mosquito breeding habitats e.t.c
