Bio-pesticides, envelops a wide range of entomopathogenic microbial pesticides, plant secondary metabolites and other important sources which have potential to replace synthetic pesticides. The improvements in microbial vermin control incorporate the usage of bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and nematode species that may aggressively repress the development of pathogenic and toxigenic miniaturized scale life forms on significant horticultural wares. Bio-pesticide items are currently accessible…

Mode of Action and Specificity of Bacillus thuringiensis Toxins in the Control of Caterpillars and Stink Bugs in Soybean Culture
The bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) produces delta-endotoxins that possess toxic properties and can be used as biopesticides, as well as a source of genes for the construction of transgenic
The development, regulation and use of biopesticides for integrated pest management
The new biopesticide products that will result from this research will bring with them new regulatory and economic challenges that must be addressed through joint working between social and natural scientists, policy makers and industry.
Prospects of botanical pesticides for the future in integrated pest management programme (IPM) with special reference to neem uses in Egypt
In Egypt, experiments were carried out on the efficacy of neem seed kernel extract fractions and formulations against different pests, and promising results were obtained showing feeding deterrency, repellency, toxicity, sterilant and growth disruptive activities.
Regulating biocontrol agents: a historical perspective and a critical examination comparing microbial and macrobial agents
This study concludes that as long as MBCAs are evaluated within systems initially developed for chemicals, the risk for inappropriate emphasis of chemical hazards and therefore unnecessarily complicated assessments will be maintained.
Baculovirus Pesticides: Present State and Future Perspectives
Despite the considerable number of programs worldwide utilizing baculovirus as biopesticides, their use is still low compared to another biological insecticide based on the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner.
Assessment of the application of baculoviruses for control of Lepidoptera.
The use of baculoviruses against Lepidoptera is reviewed, with the utilization of the nuclear polyhedrosis virus of A. gemmatalis in Brazil serving as a case-study.
Past and Current Prospects for the Use of Botanicals and Plant Allelochemicals in Integrated Pest Management
Improvement of plant resistance to pathogens through identification of genes coding for allelochemicals and stimulation of natural passive and active defenses of the plant is improved.
Environmental fate and effects of Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) proteins from transgenic crops: a review.
Assessment of the nontarget effects of Bt protein toxins indicates that there is a low level of hazard to most groups of nontarget organisms, although some investigations are of limited ecological relevance.
