When Is a Pest Not a Pest?posted on 29 May 2014 | posted in General
A weed is just a flower growing in the wrong place.
Similarly a pest is only a pest if it's becoming a nuisance. Many insects, birds and rodents can be valuable contributors to the little ecosystem in your garden.
So never see such creatures as automatically "pests" - they may be doing your garden or even home a favour!
