Activity of the botanical aphicides 1,5-diphenyl-1-pentanone and 1,5-diphenyl-2-penten-1-one on two species of Aphididnae.
TLDR
This is the first report of aphicidal activity in these two compounds, which may represent a new class of aphicide. Expand
Environmental conservation and locust control — possible conflicts and solutions
TLDR
The environmental impact, as well as ecological and conceptual characteristics of acridid pest control, are reviewed and it is concluded that ecologically significant risks may arise, in particular in ecosystems exposed to multiple stressors. Expand
What is the place of biological control in acridid integrated pest management?
TLDR
With Metarhizium established as part of the IPM portfolio, there will be scope to explore further biocontrol options, such as the microsporidian Nosema locustae and the hymenopteran egg parasitoids Scelio spp. Expand

Summary The current locust control strategy has been modified from what was originally a preventive strategy to a crisis management strategy. This is because instead of pre-empting swarm developmentExpand

TLDR
In order to make experimental studies comparable and statistically meaningful, the article recommends the following formula: per cent control = 100(X - Y)/X, which eliminates errors due to deaths in the control sample which were not due to the insecticide. Expand
