Why do insects, animals and birds become a problem…?
Animals, birds and insects are all around us, all of the time. Virtually every species has some form of positive impact on the environment, being both prey and a food source in many cases. Without the smallest bug to the biggest animal, we would not be able to survive; crops and plants would not thrive the way that they do.
But, this is only harmonious when everything is in balance. Sometimes, due to a variety of factors, these animals, birds and insects can become a nuisance and when this happens, they become a pest… and you need help to get rid of them!
What can make an animal, bird or insect become a pest?
- Weather – prolonged bouts of ‘odd’ or unusual weather, and their impact on our environment, can mean that some pests are pushed from their natural habitat, finding shelter in our homes, gardens and businesses. Flooding, for example, after prolonged rains can mean that rats seek shelter other than in river banks etc.
- Built environment – sometimes WE encroach on their space! Building projects can often disturb not only their natural habitat, but also cause disturbance in the land around them. As a result, they seek new nesting sites and our garages, homes, businesses, gardens etc. become attractive prospects. Moles, for example, can become ‘confused’ and trapped between buildings, making their tunnels under public parks, sports grounds tec.
- Our habits & lifestyles – also, the way we live too, can be attractive to some pests. Recycling is great for the environment but, compost bins and recycling receptacles – and refuse bins that are rarely emptied every week now – make a great feeding place for pests of all kinds; from flies to foxes, rats to mice, sometimes we need to make changes to our habits in order to discourage pests from sharing our space.
