Pests are generally unwanted creepers and crawlers that have the ability to destroy everything wherever they grow. If they grow on crops they damage them and if they grow at your home they cause infectious diseases to humans. We can say that directly or indirectly they affect human beings. So pest management is very very important.
Pest management is to keep a watch on the growth of pests. It includes various methods which start from pest inspection and ends with pest removal and pest control. Every method depends upon the type of pest present. Many new methods have been developed which replace the previous one with the introduction of new types of pests. In ancient times, only pesticides were used which eradicate pests to some extent but also affect crops sometimes. But now Integrated pest management IPM is used which combines traditional and modern techniques and generate new techniques which are:
- Easy to use
