About this book

Summarizes and analyzes recent developments in the promising area of using high and low extreme temperatures as a means of pest control. The book outlines the biophysics of heat transfer, the physiology of heat and cold sensitivity, and temperature regulation in insects, and then discusses current research in applying lethal temperatures as well as temperature synergism with other pest management techniques and the cold storage of insects used as biological control agents.
