About this book

Among the highlights of Advanced Technologies for Managing Insect Pests is the use of novel insecticides acting on a specific site in an insect group and are compatible with natural enemies and the environment. One of such approaches is based on disrupting the activity of biochemical sites acting on transcription factors such as the basic Helix-Loop-Helix (bHLH) family, anti juvenile hormone (AJH) agents that target JH biosynthetic enzymes, G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR) and bursicon as targets for insect control. Another one is the biotechnology or the genetic approach such as gene silencing (RNA interference) and Bt-crops. Other sections of Advanced Technologies for Managing Insect Pests are devoted to the plant's natural products, optical manipulation and the use of nanotechnology for improving insect control methods.
