Summary:
"The use of biological control agents has been increasing worldwide and there are now many companies mass-producing such organisms, particularly for the control of insect pests. However, there is a great need for quality control in the production and use of these natural enemies, which include insect parasitoids and predators, fungi and viruses, for example.

Abstract:

"The use of biological control agents has been increasing worldwide and there are now many companies mass-producing such organisms, particularly for the control of insect pests. However, there is a great need for quality control in the production and use of these natural enemies, which include insect parasitoids and predators, fungi and viruses, for example. This book has been written by leading scientists from Europe and North America to provide both background theory and practical guidance on this subject. It will be of significant interest to those working in areas of entomology, ecology, crop protection and pest management."--Jacket.
