(PDF File, KB) Insects commonly mistaken for biological control agents (PDF File, KB) Fungi commonly mistaken for biological control agents (PDF File, KB). Biological control is an environmentally sound and effective means of reducing or mitigating pests and pest effects through the use of natural enemies. The aim of Biological Control is to promote this science and technology through publication of original research articles and reviews of research and theory. The journal devotes a section to reports on biotechnologies dealing with the.

It also updated biological weed control methods, introducing two new insect control agents for tansy ragwort and bull and Canada thistle. Following up on insect biocontrol introductions carried out in the s and s, surveys of 18 insects on 10 target weed species were carried out. These surveys.

Biological control or biocontrol is a method of controlling pests such as insects, mites, weeds and plant diseases using other organisms. It relies on predation, parasitism, herbivory, or other natural mechanisms, but typically also involves an active human management can be an important component of integrated pest management (IPM) programs.

McEvoy and Coombs () argue that the potential effectiveness of candidate biocontrol agents has been given too little attention in the selection process. They note that ten or more species of biocontrol agents have been released against some weeds. Biological control of weeds has been practised for over years and Australia has been a leader in this weed management technique.
The classical example of control of prickly pears in Australia by the cactus moth Cactoblastis cactorum, which was imported from the Americas, helped to set the future for biocontrol of weeds in many countries. A small wasp, Trichogramma ostriniae, introduced from China to help control the European corn borer, is a recent example of a long history of classical biological control efforts for this major pest.
Many classical biological control programs for insect pests and weeds are under way across the United States and Canada. The plumeless thistle, Carduus acanthoides L., is a major weed of pastures, highway median strips, and road sides in much of western Virginia.
It occupies a range similar to that of musk thistle, Carduus thoermeri Weinmann, and is often found together with musk thistle.

the introduction and release of exotic insects, mites, or pathogens to give permanent control, is the predominant method in weed biocontrol.
Inundative releases of predators and integrated pest management are less widely used. The United States, Australia, South Africa, Canada, and New Zealand use biocontrol the most.

Introduction The recorded history of biological control may be considered as dating from Egyptian records of 4, years ago, where domestic cats were depicted as useful in rodent control. Insect Predation was recognized at an early date, but the significance of entomophagy and exploitation was lost except for a few early human populations in Asia where a sophisticated agriculture had developed.
Biological control can be fickle. Ultimately, you can't control whatever natural enemy you set loose in an ecosystem. While it's supposed to manage one pest, there is always the possibility that your predator will switch to a different target - they might decide eating your crops instead of the insects infesting them is a better plan.
Not only that, but in introducing a new species to an. Biological control programmes in Canada Description This volume (71 chapters), the fifth in a series documenting biological control programmes in Canada, presents new information on specific insect, weed or plant diseases, some of which are updates of on-going studies on historical biological control projects while other chapters.
Biological control can contribute to this requirement, but sinceso-called classical biological control of insect pests has remained at a success rate of around 10% (Gurr and Wratten, ).
If the successful 10% also start to fail, then the consequences would be profound.The cost of developing and conducting a biological control program varies with the target weed and the strategy selected. On average, a biological control program will cost about $4 million.
But every dollar spent in development returns at least $50 in benefit. Biological control of weeds will not eliminate the need to use chemical herbicides.
