A short history lesson – in pest control

Posted on by fpadm

Roughly back in about 8000BC the need for some sort of pest control was noticed; once farmers could see the damage being done to their crops by pests. If they didn’t try and do something to stop the pests – they lost their crops, the only way they found to deal with this was to keep moving their crops. It really wasn’t till about the 1500’s when pest control actively started, up until then the Romans and Egyptians tried using some of the poisonous compounds found naturally in plants as insecticides, but it didn’t really work.

When explorers began exploring and exchanging animals and plants native to their country with inhabitants of other countries new and different pests began emerging. The importation of natural predators was brought in, but that created new issues, when A killed off B A ran rampant with no natural predator to control them. Other preventative measures were taken on and expanded – soon inorganic chemicals were produced replaced later by more modern chemicals such as DDT.
