Behavioural manipulation of natural enemies: potential use in insect pest management


, : Behavioural manipulation of natural enemies: potential use in insect pest management. Agricultural Zoology Reviews 7: 181-216

Following a brief introduction, the author reviews the potential benefits for pest management of manipulating natural enemy behaviour, and possible mechanisms for doing this (use of chemical and visual cues, modification of cultural practices, and behavioural manipulation during rearing).
