Designed to help the reader understand specific problems of pest management, and resolve them using the natural enemies of pests - insects, mites and diseases. The authors describe the impact of predator-prey relationships on host plant species in arable, orchard and protected environments, providing practical tips for gardeners. The text is illustrated throughout by high quality photographs, providing a colour photo of every entry indicating the different stages of life-cycles.
All chapters of this revised edition have been updated and expanded, and more than 300 new photographs have been added. It covers new beneficial organisms and pest profiles, and includes a new chapter on the practical aspects and application of biological control. The 2nd edition also contains a new final chapter that puts biological control in perspective, discussing interactions that occur when using biocontrol for population management as well as some of the possible mechanisms of biocontrol.
