Successful insect-pest management and control are profitable. resurgence and replacement, researchers returned to integrating techniques for control of pests. For example, integrated tactics were utilized for outbreaks of pests in greenhouses. These pests were managed by employing biological control and the judicious use of insecticides (van Emden and Peakall ).Cited by: 1.
