Trees And Pest Control.
Pests are those insects that are harmful to both crops and animal. They take away all the nutrients of the plants and eventually make the plants weak. Pest infestation in some areas is prone. These areas suffer great losses in the production line since the produce they get is not up to standard. Since the produce does not meet the specifications of the customers, great rejection in the market is experienced. Pests can be controlled either chemically or biologically. Various pests that are prone to different areas are being researched on by the research institutions that have been put up. Along period of time is taken in order to do analysis and estimate the number of pests that are prone to given areas by the research institutions. Well trained people are employed by these institutions and they have great experience in identifying and dealing with pests.
Through biological control, pests are eradicated from plantations of trees by use of other animals that feed on these small pests. This method is very much environmental friendly since the air is not polluted. In these plantations the animals have to be in a position to feed on the pests and also be adapted to the environment. Proper selection of these animals has to be done in order to ensure that the aim of eradicating the pests is met.
If biological method of eradication of pests in the tree plantation is not effective, you can go ahead and use the chemical method. The manufactured chemicals that are used in chemical eradication are specific for different pests. The type of pest that you are eradicating has to be considered since each chemical has a specific pest that they eradicate. Right proportions of chemicals have to be used in order to achieve best results. The instructions on how best to use the chemicals is always given in the container of the chemical by the manufacturer.
As compared to the biological method, the chemical method has an advantage of fast action. A couple of disadvantages are experienced despite this advantage. These chemicals are not environmental friendly since the fumes produced by the chemicals cause air pollution. These chemicals can cause the people who handle them to have poisoning and burns if they do not safely handle the chemicals. This calls for trained personnel to handle these chemicals and also they should be very cautious in the handling process. Most people find it hard to acquire these chemicals since their cost is high. The chemicals can have their generics hence you can purchase them and the results are not very appealing. This sector has to be put key interest since pest control in tree plantation is very crucial.
