From the beginning of this century, tachinid flies have been involved in many operations of applied biological control against different insect pests. A review is done about utilization of Tachinidae all over the world. These parasitoid insects were used by inoculative, augmentative or inundative releases. Most of the operations were accomplished in the nearctic and neotropical regions. Sometimes great successes were obtained especially in North America and in tropical areas. Success or failure… Expand
