Controlling Insect Pests of Stored Products Using Insect Growth Regulators and Insecticides of Microbial Origin
Reviews the progress of research into alternative substances for the protection of durable foodstuffs against insect pests following concerns (such as insect resistance, residues, cost and environmental contamination) over the use of synthetic contact insecticides. Promising substances and new areas of investigation are identified, with results from laboratory and field trials outlined. A comprehensive bibliography covering relevant publications over the past 20 years is also provided. Of interest to workers in the field of storage entomology, research students and those involved in the control of pests of durable products in both tropical and temperate climates.
