Pests are animals or plants that affect humans negatively. In general pests become a problem when there is an ecological disruption and imbalance. They have an important role in the food chain and in the nutrient cycles.
Pest control is not aimed at making pests extinct but to manage them so that there is no negative impact to the normal operations and existence of man, livestock and other organism
Common pests in Kenya include;
- Rodents (rats and mice)
