Pests of Humans


Pests of humans and our environments come in all shapes and sizes, from the tiny louse to the common rat. This page provides resources to keep people and their homes safe from the pests that prey on them, and to help create clean and healthy human environments. Larger pests such as raccoons, deer, and armadillos are discussed on the Nuisance Animal page of this section.
