Pest Control (often known simply as PC) is a co-operative members-only combat-based activity. Players must defend an NPC (non-player character) known as the Void Knight from an onslaught of monsters, while at the same time destroying the portals from which the monsters spawn.
The activity is played in the name of Guthix to retain balance in the world, which may be disrupted by an influx of monsters invading islands in the south of the world. It is run by an order of Guthix known as the Void Knights. Players board landers, which transport them to islands under invasion. The activity is divided into three landers; access to each lander is determined by combat level.
This is a 'safe' activity. Players who die keep their items, respawn on the lander, and can rejoin combat immediately. In addition, Hitpoints, Prayer points, the Special Attack bar, and run Energy are fully restored at the end of each game. All stats are restored to their normal levels at the end of each game. This means that stats boosts of various Potions like Super sets do not carry over from game to game. This make using these potions somewhat expensive, as each game will require a new dose from each potion.
A game of Pest Control can be played by up to 25 players. Multiple games may be played at once by many groups of 25 players. Anyone who wishes to play must board the lander. If the lander fills with 25 players, the game will begin automatically. Otherwise, players must wait 30 seconds for the game to begin.
Dwarven Multicannons may not be used during the activity. Potions are usable but are not advised to be used.
Pest Control is located on the Void Knights' Outpost to get here a player must simply open the spell book using the Minigames spell and then select Pest Control.
