Currently several techniques exist for limiting damages caused by agricultural pests. The application of pesticides alone is the most common approach, but it can be harmful to the agroecosystem in which it is used and can be less effective than other methods. Another means of pest control is biological control, which seeks to eliminate the use of pesticides. In biological control preservation of the pest’s natural enemies is essential, as is the utilization of biopesticides, naturally occurring substances that are harmful to the pest. A third technique in agricultural pest control is Integrated Pest Management, or IPM, which utilizes biological control techniques, but also uses chemical pesticides as a last resort. This guide updates TB 82-6, Biological Control of Insects, and provides a representative sample of Library of Congress titles on the control of agricultural pests. Not intended as a comprehensive bibliography, this compilation is designed--as the name of the series implies--to put the reader "on target."
