What is a pest?
A pest can be any living organism that is invasive or prolific, detrimental, troublesome, noxious, destructive, or a nuisance to either plants or animals, human or human concerns, livestock, or human structures.
Pests are associated with animals (vertebrates such as birds, rodents, and other mammals; or invertebrates such as insects, ticks, mites and snails; or nematodes such as worms) because they cause damage to agriculture, wild ecosystem and or human habitats. The term pest can also refer to all other harmful organisms such as plants (weeds) and pathogens (bacteria, viruses, or fungi).
Common pests in Mechanicsville and Central Virginia include termites, cockroaches, silverfish, fleas, spiders, rats/mice, flies, mosquitoes, mites, bed bugs, etc.
