Before we attempt to determine whether biological pest control is the solution to pest-control-related environmental issues, it is necessary to include some background information on the pest control industry as a whole, for the benefit of those who may be unfamiliar with it.

Pests are species (usually insects) that harm the people who refer to them as such. Insects that infest and eat up farmers’ crops (whether in the fields or during storage) are referred to as pests by farmers. Housekeepers, on the other hand, consider ‘domestic insects’ that cause problems in domestic settings (such as moths, which can ruin cloths in storage) to be pests. It’s important to remember that, while most pests are insects, there are a lot of pests that aren’t: rodents (which can wreak havoc on crops in farms and items stored in homes) are considered pests despite the fact that they aren’t insects.
Having seen how harmful pests can be, it’s only normal that those who become ‘victims’ of them want to get rid of them. Meanwhile, those who haven’t yet been afflicted by pests would like to escape such a fate. Pests, by the way, can be a serious problem: pests have been known to destroy thousands of hectares of farmland in a single day, resulting in losses of millions of dollars. Pest control refers to the measures taken to prevent pest invasion or to address pest invasion after it has occurred.
Pest control now comes in a variety of ways, depending on the pests that need to be eradicated (or to prevent the invasion of). Although larger pests such as rats can be managed for a long time using mechanical methods such as trapping, chemical control has proven to be effective for the vast majority of pests, which are mostly insects as previously described. Pesticides are the substances that were used in this effort.
