Chapter 9 (Page no: 185)

Manipulation of host-finding and acceptance behaviours in insects: importance to IPM.

This paper focuses on the manipulation of host finding and acceptance behaviours to shift highly mobile and discriminating insect populations to plants or traps outside the valued crops. Potential tools for implementing the "push-pull strategy" are explained, and several models to demonstrate the application of behavioural manipulation in trap crops are proposed. The use of this strategy as a valuable tool in integrated pest management is discussed.
