About this book

&i;Fundamentals of Stored Product Entomology&o; discusses the fundamentals of stored-product entomology that need to be considered in planning, implementation, and evaluation of a pest management program. It is based on the review of an extensive database of references and many years of research on stored-product insect problems by the expert authors. With recent regulatory changes, consumers concern about pesticide residues in food, and food companies embracing IPM and alternative approaches for pest management, this book is timely. It provides the basic information needed to manage pests with and without the use of chemicals. Managing pests requires a thorough understanding of insect biology, behavior, ecology, sampling, pros and cons of management options, and responses of insects to the various management options.
