Various Methods of Ensuring a Pest Free Environment
Some of the creatures which attack the plants on the firm and other plans which has direct or indirect benefit to man and the animals are called the pests. We have some plants which are affected by these pests in which some of them are mature animals like the rodents while some are insects and their life stages. In most cases you will find that attack on the crops is selective in that it is done by some of the pests while some of the pests attack any plant they come across.
It cannot be ignored that pests are becoming a menace each day with them attacking more and more crops to the extent that people are seriously looking for means to ensure that they can secure their crops from this damage. When most people are dealing with the pests the only thing they need to do is to have the best method which will be used to eliminate them without having to destroy the crop in the field and hence there is need to engage more mind. Traditionally before research came with some other methods of pest elimination people used the cultural practices of pest control which works even today.
Crop rotation is one of the cultural methods that is commonly used by people who want to destroy the seasonal pests which generally are known to attack certain crops and hence when another plant is introduced the pests will just die as there are no other crops to attack. Some people are resulting in biological means of ensuring that they can deal with the pests as one of the most harmless ways of dealing with these creatures.
It entails merely introducing a predator to the pests, and the predator must be friendly to the crops to ensure that the pest infestation is over. Biological method of pest control can only deal with the pests Which have a natural predator or it is more comfortable to make a predator for them in the lab and therefore although it is the safest it is not the one that is widely used. The Method that is successfully used for almost all the pests attacking the crops include the chemical method which is one of the ways that makes people have some hope when they are severely attacked by the pests.
In most cases people use the poisons to eliminate the pests that attack crops on their farms, and therefore it becomes essential to ensure that the pests are well dealt with. Use of chemicals is a method widely used because people can use it to eliminate pest in large plantations, and also it can kill every pest if applied well. At times traps are used to trap and kill the pests especially if there are not many of them.
