Description 1 online resource
Summary The adverse affects of pesticides and other toxic deterrents on the environment and human health are causing researchers to investigate biological methods for controlling arthropods - flies and mites - which negatively affect livestock and poultry. In this volume, scientists from ten countries examine the use of predators, competitors and pathogens as biological control agents for these pests. The range of topics discussed includes biocontrol as a component of integrated pest management systems in feedlots, pastures and confined animal housing, as well as the interactions of pesticides and biocontrol agents, population modelling and the potential for biocontrol in livestock and poultry pest management. The book is intended for scholars, policymakers and professionals working in veterinary and medical entomology, biological control and integrated pest management
