Push-pull strategies involve the behavioral manipulation of insect pests and their natural enemies via the integration of stimuli that act to make the protected resource unattractive or unsuitable to the pests (push) while luring them toward an attractive source (pull) from where the pests are subsequently removed. The push and pull components are generally nontoxic. Therefore, the strategies are usually integrated with methods for population reduction, preferably biological control. Push-pull…

Push-pull strategy for insect pest management
TLDR
The most successful example of the push-pull strategy currently being used by farmers was developed in Africa for controlling stemborers on cereal crops and has shown a high adoption rate and spontaneous technology transfer by farmers.
The push-pull strategy: A new approach to the eco-friendly method of pest management in agriculture
TLDR
Pest control method Push pull is a newly emerged pest control method which uses non-toxic components for pest population reduction with reduced pesticide input and could be a useful method in Integrated pest management programme to increase agricultural productivity.
Push–Pull Strategy
TLDR
The “push–pull strategy” is based on a novel cropping system approach involving behavioral manipulation of insect pests and their natural enemies for integrated pest and weed management in farming systems and is very useful for smallholder farmers who practice mixed cropping systems.
REVIEW: A mechanistic framework to improve understanding and applications of push-pull systems in pest management
TLDR
A mechanistic conceptual framework is provided for the development of push-pull or stimulo-deterrent pest management approaches, based on the cues, sensory modalities, pest behaviours and spatial ranges over which they can occur during host selection and that can influence pest distribution.
Context-Dependence and the Development of Push-Pull Approaches for Integrated Management of Drosophila suzukii
TLDR
It is argued that profound knowledge on context-dependence is important for the development and implementation of push-pull approaches and is illustrated by discussing the relevant fundamental knowledge on the invasive pest species Drosophila suzukii as an example.
Push-pull to manage leaf-cutting ants: an effective strategy in forestry plantations.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the push-pull strategy can be successfully employed to manage LCAs in young willow plantations and generates biodiversity which can improve the ecosystem functioning, and it can be easily implemented by producers since its design is based on regular willowing plantations.
Push-pull farming systems.
Push-Pull Strategy: an integrated approach to manage insect-pest and weed infestation in cereal cropping systems
The “Push–Pull” strategy is an effective, efficient, and powerful tool in integrated pest management (IPM) that is combining several behaviour-modifying stimuli to control cereal stem borers and the

Concepts and applications of trap cropping in pest management.
TLDR
A broader definition of trap cropping is proposed that encompasses the inherent characteristics of the trap crop plants themselves as well as the strategies associated with their deployment, which is more knowledge-intensive than many other forms of pest management.
Towards the development of a push-pull strategy for improving biological control of western flower thrips on chrysanthemum
TLDR
A push-pull strategy for improving biological control of western flower thrips on chrysanthemum is developed, using the predatory bugs Orius laevigatus for control of WFT adults and larvae, and the predatory mites Stratiolaelaps and Gaeolaelaps against WFT pupae.
Behavioral manipulation methods for insect pest-management.
TLDR
Methods using stimuli to manipulate behavior of a pest for the purpose of protecting a valued resource are discussed and particular emphasis is placed on methods that have been developed through studies of pest behavior and on combining stimuli to increase efficacy.
Second‐stage integrated management of apple arthropod pests
TLDR
Evaluated the effectiveness of what the authors term ‘second‐stage’ IPM practices, which involved integration of pesticidal control of early season apple arthropod pests and behavioral, cultural and biological control of mid and late season apple Argyrotaenia velutinana females in the absence of insecticide and acaricide application after mid June.
Integration of Repellents, Attractants, and Insecticides in a “Push-Pull” Strategy for Managing German Cockroach (Dictyoptera: Blattellidae) Populations
TLDR
The results from large arena studies in the laboratory show that the push-pull strategy can be used to displace pests from resources or commodities that are to be protected, and simultaneously lure the pest to an attractant source coupled with a pest control agent.
Stimulo-deterrent diversion: A concept and its possible application to onion maggot control
TLDR
It is made that using Stimulo-deterrent diversion along with soil insecticide might relax or even reverse selection for physiological resistance of D. antiqua to insecticides.
