Fundamentals of Stored Product Entomology
by David W. Hagstrum

Fundamentals of Stored Product Entomology discusses the fundamentals of stored-product entomology that need to be considered in planning, implementation, and evaluation of a pest management program.

This book provides the basic information needed to manage pests with and without the use of chemicals.

Features:

  • provides a thorough understanding of insect biology, behavior, ecology, sampling, pros and cons of management options, and responses of insects to the various management options
  • provides insight into the diversity of foods and habitats utilized by stored-product insects, the types of economic losses attributable to them, and the ways in which an understanding of their biology can be used to study or manage these insects
  • insect mobility, sources of insect infestation, sampling, life history, and population growth are discussed
  • decision aids, the cost of management methods, and the resistance of insects to management methods are also covered

Eight pest management methods are thoroughly described, including a statement of the basic operating principle and background information. For help choosing various chemical and nonchemical methods for diverse situations, the advantages, disadvantages and implementation options for each method are given.
