This revised and updated fifth edition emphasizes the movement away from heavy reliance on polluting and toxic chemicals to an ecologically-based strategy of integrated pest management (IPM). The book describes more than 600 important insect pests. Features include a detailed life history of each insect; field keys for species identification; properties and uses of pesticides; microbial insecticides, attractants, and repellents; comprehensive coverage of biological control, chemical ecology, and host-plant resistance; and important references to scientific literature.
