In the early days of farming in America, crops were not sprayed with chemicals to kill pests. That is what made them so susceptible to insect pests. Locusts and corn borers are the most destructive of plant pests for corn and wheat.

That the one focuses upon insect pests and that the other includes insect and non-insect pests constitutes the difference between an insecticide and a pesticide. Specifically, the ending -cide advises users that the product is a deathly or disabling control. Not all pests are insects. For example, mites and ticks belong in the arachnid class with spiders, not the insect class with aphids and fleas.

It is by damaging and devouring above- and below-ground body parts that insects and non-insect pests attack plants. Specifically, a plant can be attacked at ground-level or below the surface. Either attack is potentially destructive and even fatal to plant well-being. Below-ground insect and non-insect pests obstruct plant roots' attempts to in-take soluble nutrients necessary for proper growth and development. Above-ground insect and non-insect pests prevent the plant in question from progressing through proper leafing… Read More

Companion plants, crop rotation, herbicides, insecticides, natural enemies, plowing and tilling, resistant varieties, row covers, and soil drenches are ways that farmers control the growth of insect pests. Insect pests can shelter in weeds, whose presence can be eliminated by pre-emergent, target-specific herbicides that eliminate undesirable vegetation before they can take over resources and space and by soil drenches that eliminate ground-dwelling, surface-sheltering insect pests. Companion planting, crop rotation, natural enemies, resistant varieties, and row… Read More

A household pest can be any insect that becomes a nuisance.
Banned in most countries now
the insect known as the Boll weevil
While insects can operate outside of the human world, and exist on a level that is not dependent on humans in any way, pests are quite different. Pests are in some way detrimental or dangerous to humans, or human interests.
They are used as an attractant, to lure the bugs into traps.
