Pesticides and Pest control methods

In agriculture, pests are divided into cultural, chemical and biological means. Plowing and cultivation of the soil before sowing reduces the pest burden and there is a modern trend to control the use of pesticides as far as possible. In homes and urban environments, the pests are the rodents, birds, insects and other organisms that share the habitat with humans, and that feed on and spoil possessions. Control of these pests is attempted through exclusion, repulsion, physical removal or chemical means  

Control methods  

Biological pest control: Biological pest control is a method of controlling pests such as insects and mites by using other organisms.

Cultural pest control: Crop rotation can help to control pests by depriving them of their host plants. It is a major tactic in the control of corn rootworm and has reduced early season incidence of Colorado potato beetle by as much as 95%

Mechanical pest control is the management and control of pests using physical means such as fences, barriers or electronic wires. It includes also weeding and change of temperature to control pests

Trap cropping: Crop of a plant that attracts pests, violate them from nearby crops. Pests affected on the trap crop can be more easily controlled using pesticides or other methods.
