Biorational Control of Arthropod Pests

Application and Resistance Management

Editors: Ishaaya, Isaac, Horowitz, A. Rami (Eds.)

  • Based on environmentally friendly approaches for controlling arthropod pests along with resistance management programs such as:
  • Neuropeptide agonists and antagonists as rational pest control agents
  • Tyramine and octopamine receptors as a source for rational insecticides
  • Ecdysone and juvenile hormone analogues as a source for selective insecticides
  • Genetically modified insects as a tool for rational control
  • Behavioural approaches for controlling insect pests such as genetically modified insects, symbiosis and male/female call disturbance
  • Natural products as a source for rational insecticides
  • Transgenic approaches aimed at developing crops resistant to insect pests
  • Resistance management programs aimed at lessening resistance development to novel insecticides

About this book

Among the highlights of this book are the use of selective control agents acting on specific biochemical sites such as neuropeptides, ecdysteroids and juvenile hormone analogs; GABA, ACh, ryanodine and octopamine receptors; pheromone and insect communication disruption along with plant constituents for selectively controlling arthropod pests. Novel biotechnology strategies that exploit genetically modified plants, insects, and symbionts for the management of insect pests and disease-borne vectors are presented. Furthermore, physical control techniques can serve as important tools to protect our crops from arthropod pests. Finally, countermeasures for resistance to biorational control agents using advanced biological and biochemical approaches are also discussed.
