This book is designed to help the reader anticipate and recognize specific problems of pest management and then to resolve them using the natural enemies of pests — insects, mites, and diseases. The main sections on pest profiles, beneficial species, and entomopathogens provide a pest identification guide as well as information on species characteristics, life cycles, damage symptoms, plant and pest associations, and influences on growing practices. The book will be a valuable reference for professional, academic, and lay readers, whether they are growers, consultants, scientists, or students.
