Hmmm...everything and nothing. There are good and bad points to all of it.

I'm not sure it would ever be possible to get rid of 1 thing completely without affecting other things. For example, I'd love to get rid of poison ivy / oak / sumac - but they serve a useful purpose for birds and small mammals. (Eat the little berries, take shelter in the tangle of underbrush, etc.) Or, I'd love to get rid of mosquitoes, but they make a quick, easy-to-catch meal for lots of winged creatures.

Those would be my top contenders though.

I think I would have to say Mosquito's. But I agree, it would cause an imbalance in nature.

I'm no scientist, but I think when one species tanks or goes extinct there's always something else to replace it.

Not really sure there is always a reason why there is something.

I admit there are lot's of insects I don't want to see around anymore but then again I don't want to be living in human trash and isn't that what insects help clean up?
