Wildlife that have become agricultural pests present a widespread problem throughout the world. Traditional control strategies have been, and to a large extent still are, focused on attempts to eradicate the pest species. This has often been very effective in industrial countries, due to technologically sophisticated methods that can result in the actual extermination of a given species within a particular area. Such control is usually more difficult and often unsuccessful in developing countries for a variety of reasons, that include the greater number of potential pest species and the lack of appropriate technology.
