Monocultures, invasive pest species and climate change make growing high quality crops and maximising yields a regular challenge for arable farmers. We are learning about the effect of many pesticides on our biodiversity and the search is on to find methods to reduce the use of them without compromising profitable harvests.
All branches of horticulture are increasing worldwide, as it allows to grow valuable crops under more controlled conditions, independent of weather challenges.
However, growing crops intensively in a glasshouse environment also increases the hazard to a destructive pest taking hold and threatening the commercial viability of the harvest.
Destructive insect pests of trees are an integral part of forest ecosystems, however, have a significant economic, ecological, and often social impact
on forest productivity and values. Sometimes the populations grow rapidly to damaging proportions.
Flies are the most common and a difficult challenge in livestock breeding and farming.
Infestations in the dairy industry can lead to reduced milk yield and weight loss.
Flies can carry pathogens possibly leading to disease in horses, cattle, pigs and poultry.
The Pest Control industry is, like many other sectors, wanting to reduce the use of pesticides. Not only is it better for the environment, but for the actual workers, too!
Clients often prefer a pest control company, which can effectively deal with challenges with more sustainable methods.
