Insecticides and Repellents

"Highly Recommended. A good complement to a course on integrated pest management or on pesticides and the environment." -Science Books & Films
"Vine Weevil" - this female only insect lays thousands of eggs a year. Here we learn how a beetle is found to be its natural predator; "Aphid Control" - the latest battle against this tiny but damaging insect is to douse crops in an odor they abhor; parasites from attacking young trout; "Sea-Lice Lure" - a flashing light, instead of insecticides, lures sea lice away from salmon; "Midges" - an organic scent turns the table on this maddening insect; "Mosquito Meals" - chicken skins provide an accurate and less painful way to research mosquito repellent; "Deathwatch Watched" - careful studies reveal ways of overcoming the wood-hungry insect, Deathwatch Beetle. 02/08DE IJSCA 30 min.
