Integrated Pest Management.
Council on Environmental Quality, Washington, DC.
After a brief discussion of the problems of pesticide use and the status of current pest control practices, a definition of integrated pest management is given along with some examples of its successful application, and a description of some of the reasons why the concept has not been applied more widely. The major techniques which can be used as part of an integrated pest management program that are covered include genetic, metabolic, and environmental control methods. Parasites, predators, microbial agents, and sterilization are also discussed. The concluding chapter covers the role of the Federal Government in the development and use of integrated pest management. (Author/BB)
