Pest Control by Helmut F. Van Emden
Book DescriptionThe various approaches to pest control are reviewed with emphasis on their history, advantages, disadvantages and future potential. The book discusses how far chemical control has created problems and how far these may be solved by further chemical control or by alternative methods. The reasons why insects are pest problems are discussed so that the ecological merits and demerits of the various control methods can be assessed. Stress is laid on both the biotic and economic environments in which pest control has to operate. * Presents a balanced case concerning the advantages and disadvantages of the chemical control of pests in historical context. * A wide variety of examples are cited and an up-to-date guide to original sources is presented. * Thoroughly revised and updated edition of a highly successful concise textbook.
