Description

Any unwanted insects or animal, such as birds, bats, rodents that causes damage makes itself a nuisance. Pest damage can include material loss (holes, tunnels, chewed wires, etc), fouling (flyspecks, Guano, etc.). Integrated Pest Management programs are instituted to minimize damage by pests. Chemical pesticides have been used since the 18th century to destroy pests or inhibit their development
