Classical Biological Control of Bemisia tabaci in the United by Juli Gould, Kim Hoelmer, John Goolsby

By Juli Gould, Kim Hoelmer, John Goolsby

This publication reports the interagency examine and improvement attempt on classical organic keep watch over within the united states from 1992-2002. The winning exploration, importation, screening, review, rearing, and institution of at the very least 5 unique Bemisia tabaci average enemies in quick reaction to the devastating infestations within the united states is a landmark in interagency cooperation and coordination of a number of disciplines. during this quantity, many of the authors current unique studies of ordinary enemy exploration, creation, and review efforts that might function a consultant to help and inspire classical organic keep watch over inputs into different built-in pest administration platforms.
