vermin definition and meaning

What is "vermin"?

Vermin generally refers to a group of small animals that are considered to be pests and are often unwelcome in human habitation or agricultural areas. This group of animals can include rodents such as rats and mice, as well as insects like cockroaches and bedbugs. They are known for causing damage to property, spreading disease, and competing with humans for resources. Vermin can be a serious problem in both urban and rural areas, and many methods have been developed to control their populations, including traps, poisons, and other forms of pest management. Despite the negative connotations associated with the term "vermin," many of these animals are an important part of the ecosystem and serve valuable ecological roles.
