Pest Control Hints & Tips

Game Locations: Appondale, Sol Arcade [Jamaa Township]
Players: 1
Achievements: Click here for a full list of the achievements you can earn by playing Pest Control.
Game Genre: Strategy
Game Controls: Use your left mouse button to place "defenders". You have to click and drag a defender to the game area. Unfortunately you can't just click it and click the area where you want it to go. You must drag it.
Gameplay: 
Pest Control is a great game to play! It earns you a good amount of gems and you really get into it once you start playing. It's a lot like the Club Penguin game "System Defender" (which happens to be my favorite Club Penguin game). Like almost all of the games in Jamaa there are three different difficulty levels. If you're a beginner to Pest Control I strongly suggest that you pick the Easy level. If you consider yourself an average player and want a little bit of a challenge try the Medium level! And if you want to really test your skills select the Hard level! Pest Control is the only Animal Jam game with a "Tutorial". The Tutorial basically just lets you know how to play the game. It explains how you drag defenders and how to get more tokens to purchase more defenders and it introduces 2 of the 4 defenders -- the Venus Flytrap and the Frog. It tells you that the Venus Flytrap eats ants and flies and that the Frog eats grasshoppers and dragonflies. The Tutorial lets you drag some Venus Flytraps and Frogs onto the board and you get to defeat 11 waves of Pests (that is if you place enough defenders and they're in the right places on the board).

The main goal of the game is to stop pests before they reach the end of the path by placing defenders. There are 4 different defenders (Venus Flytrap, Frog, Lizard, Snake) and there are 8 different pests (Each defender eats 2 of the 8 pests).

If you're a person who prefers picture-learning to text-learning, here's a picture I took and edited (I put the names of the defenders/pests in and made a black box around them).


























And if you learn better by reading text: (The underlined creatures are the defenders -- the two bullets underneath the underlined creature are the pests that the creature eats)

Venus Flytrap
   •Ant
   •Fly
Frog
   •Dragonfly
   •Grasshopper
Lizard
   •Beetle
   •Tarantula
Snake
   •Scorpion
   •Mouse

Unfortunately a defender will ONLY eat those certain two pests and they won't even cause damage to other pests. If you play System Defender on Club Penguin, "cannons" are the defenders and there are 3 types of cannons -- red, yellow, and purple. And there are 3 "bots" -- a red bot, a yellow bot and a purple bot. They are the equivalent of pests. Each of the cannons does best with its own color bot but they can also cause damage to other colors. So, yeah. Defenders will just bite their own pests. They'll let the other pests slide by them and stand still until one of their own pests comes into their territory.

  5. I think that they are actually boars, the "Mice". They don't even look like mice; their paws don't look like paws, they don't have long snouts, their ears are way too small, and they just don't really look like mice altogether. My friend and I have been disputing this for a long time, and I think that they are boars. :/ If anyone could tell me what they really are, AJ approved, I would be really grateful. Thanks in advance!

  11. I have been playing and playing and playing on hard and I can not get past the scorpions. Can someone post a hint about how many of each defender they put out, or a good strategy for where to put them. I always put out 6 venus fly traps, 5 is not enough. I try to get away with 6 frogs, but if I only do 6, some the later waves of dragonflies that come with the beetles always get past me. I usually put out about 8 Lizards and then start getting some snakes out to be ready for the scropions, but some of the beetles get by. Where do you all that have won on hard place the Frogs and Lizards for maximum effect???
