About this book

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 need for strict quality control in the production and use of these natural enemies, which include parasitoids, fungi and viruses. Written by scientists from Europe and North America, this book provides both background theory and practical guidance on this subject.
