    Types of Pest Control

    Biological bug elimination could be the power over rodents via treatments for natural predators and parasites. For example: mosquitoes tend to be controlled by putting Bt Bacillus thuringiensis ssp. israelensis, a bacterium that infects and kills mosquito larvae, in local lakes. This treatment has no known unwanted effects to either humans or even the remaining ecology, which is perfectly fine to drink. The essential reason for biological pest control is always to completely eradicate a pest whilst inflicting little or no problems for the surrounding ecosystem.
    Mechanical Bug control. Mechanical bug control is exactly what it sounds like, the application of practical techniques and some help from very basic equipment and devices. These protective devices produce a barrier between plants and insects. An incredibly simple of the is physically removing a weed in the ground. This is called tillage and is also among the oldest methods of weed control known to man.

    Destroying Breeding Grounds. Proper waste management systems and removing still water, eliminates potential risk of many pest infestations. This is a great illustration of why under developed countries are often riddled with disease causing insects and rodents. Garbage provides shelter for a lot of infestations and bacteria, with an area where still water may collect and develop a mosquito breeding ground. Once again, that is why in first world countries you will observe even less rats, cockroaches, mosquitoes, flies and other pests then if you were in a under developed country. It's because the poor garbage collection and disposal services provided in those countries.
    Hunting. In the past, some European countries local communities would collect when stray dogs and cats became to many, find and kill each of the animals by which did not have an owner. Some countries even deploy teams of rat catchers by which chase rats beyond an area where they're killed with dogs and straightforward hand tools.
