  • Indiscriminate use of pesticides for the eradication of pests cause tremendous changes to the environment and also to other non-target organisms. To prevent such contamination of the environment and pests, use of zoopesticides are in current use. These zoopesticides are cost effective, ecofriendly, safe and sustainable in the field of agriculture. Hence, the present study was undertaken to find out the effect of (zoopesticide) pygidial secretion on Odontopus varicornis. The insects were exposed… CONTINUE READING
