What is a pest?

Animals are described as pests when they:

• threaten public health
• cause loss of goodwill
• become a nuisance through bites/stings or 
• cause damage through gnawing or eating

A hierarchy of risks are considered when clearing an infestation, starting with proofing, to stop further infestation and to prevent the problem coming back. Prevention of food/water/harbourage is often the next step, following by treatment of the infestation.
