  • Insect pest: Of the I million or more species of insects, only about 1000 are of economic pest status over the entire earth, and as you might guess, most of them fall in the agricultural pest class. Less studied and counted are those that are insect pests around - the domestic or urban insect pests. There may be about 600 of these but it will probably narrow down to around 200 species that are the normal, damaging or simply annoying insects broadly classed as "pests”.

    But what is is the correct definition of insect pest? We could say a pest is a pest "in the eyes of the beholder”. An example of a pest insect that people recognize immediately is the earwig, scurrying across the floor. To some, this is a hideous and despicable nuisance. But to others they are amusing, since they know that these are only small, harmless guests sharing their home, certainly with no malicious intent.

    Honey bee is a pest to some individuals - especially those who are allergic to bee stings, and those who spend long hours digging, transplanting and weeding in the flower garden. The fear of being stung usually becomes exaggerated once stung, and you will make all efforts to avoid the nectar-foraging friends. Also, wasps and hornets are feared even more than the lowly bee. Because syrphid flies resemble bees and wasps to the untrained eye, they are frequently mistaken and suffer the same classification, and as a consequence, fate, as the look-alike pests.

    The best way to handle the subject of insect around the home and garden is to break them down into classes: household, vegetable garden, fruit trees, pets, lawn,etc. Diagrams of these insect pest will be useful when they are believed useful for gross identification.
