Truth is that natural chemicals or pesticides and essential oils, as so many are attempting to turn to can be harmful. People improperly use or over use these products. Pest control is something that should be handled by a professional. As someone said below nature has it's way of taking care of it, however, nature can not and does not deal with it in most cities, and certainly doesn't deal with termite problems. I have had an issue with termites and scorpions being here in the desert. The company Essential Pest Control has to be the best pest control Tucsonservice I've used. There are things we can't handle ourselves and that nature won't either, so it seems better to deal with someone who knows what they're doing.


I don’t see any reliable sources listed here. (the NPMA is not a neutral source) Bugguyak 14:48, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Plenty of of citations needed - anywhere it says, "it is known". Things everybody knows are almost always untrue. oh and um...natural pesticides are always better? Really? Tell that to Rotenone. All chemicals come from somewhere, and the ground cares not where. Over use of any of them is a bad idea. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:11, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

I would say add Simple Pest Control to the external links. These guys have obviously done their research. It's well structured and employs IPM fairly well. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:13, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

No on both, per WP:EL. OhNoitsJamie Talk 20:15, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

I fail to see how Simple Pest Control shines poorly upon Wikipedia. In fact, some of the information from Simple Pest Control is in the biological pest control section. We've been studying and publishing biologal and pest control strategies for over 6 years now. We know our stuff and we think it's dubious to reject our admission to the links section with no explanation other than a reference to WP:EL. We're not about to start a flame war over it, but we do think it would behoove both sites to have a link. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:42, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

I think there should be more links to local pest control companies], particularly those that are qualified and have provided assistance in any articles or are doing there part to educate the public. — Preceding unsigned comment added by DarrenG80 (talkcontribs) 14:14, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Added some Pest Control methods to the article[edit]

Since the article is called Pest control, I think all the methods of pest control should be listed in it. Wolves are pest, because they destroy livestock, just as insects, birds, and rodents who destroy crops are. Pest defined as an undesirable animal species. Undesirable organisms such as plants, fungus, and diseases would be called something else I suppose. Dream Focus (talk) 14:00, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Not sure were it would go,but Thylacines(Tasmanian Tigers)could also get a meantion as extinction was due to predator control (Dirrtypittie (talk) 14:48, 22 January 2009 (UTC))

Public Health Pest Control[edit]

Would like to add a link to the EPA UF/IFAS Public Health manual. This is the national manual.

Link would be

A topic of ....[edit]

Pesticide control has been added, which is analogue to drug control-- (talk) 11:36, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Traditional pest control[edit]

Shouldn't there be a section on the way pests are/were controlled by other animals. The reason there are farm cats is to control rats and mice. Dogs are used for this too. Hawks control pigeons. Etc. etc.
