Can Pests Disbalance the Ecosystem?
Every creature has the right to live in this world as they all contribute to the ecosystem in some way. We humans, presumably the most intelligent of them all with limbs and legs, build and mark our territories to live a life more securely, comfortably, safely, and systematically.
Rodents, Insects, Arachnids, and Pest Birds have the right to live. But, trespassing our personal space and threatening our safety is not acceptable to us, the humans. It is not a crime to ensure our well being if we have the solution to chase them off without mercilessly killing them.
Sometimes, it is true, we have to devise and adopt ways to eradicate them. But, that also is a necessity. Their increasing population can negatively impact the harmonious balance of our ecosystem. Bedbugs and German Cockroaches are headaches and can be dealt with harshly if necessary without impacting the environment.
Rodents, especially Rats, cast a considerable negative impact on our ecosystem. They are the culprits behind the decline and deterioration of arrays of native and endemic floral species. The little nuisances devour the seeds and fruits of several endemic plants before these get the scope to reproduce. The native and endemic wildlife also gets affected because of rats. This void in the ecosystem is not good for our environment and our sustenance.
The growing number of rodents mercilessly destroys the crops and hugely cause post-harvest losses. They often have been responsible for rural household food crises at moderate levels. Also, they damage stored food items via defecation and urination. Needless to say, it affects the health of humans and livestock by transmitting diseases.
Insects and Arachnids living in their natural ranges at an optimal concentration is not much of a threat. Their excessive growth and increasing tendency to interfere with the personal space of humans can upset the balance, which signals danger. Some insects are a threat to our crops. Some are threats to humans and livestock due to their venom.
Reports say insects are responsible for destroying 10% (developed nations) to 25% (developing countries) of gross national product annually. The insect-free world is not desirable as it will affect other lives. But, their excessive growth is not beneficial either.
Everything in our ecosystem is in a delicate balance, which if disturbed can cause a threat to our survival and sustenance. Pest control hence becomes necessary to avail of on time.
