Importance of Insects to man: a. For food. Many insects are consumed as food by humans. This eating of insects is called entomophagy. Insects are rich in protein and also little amounts of unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins, and iron.

Insect pests are causing a serious economic damage to important crops worldwide. However, insect pest control has made a major contribution to integrated pest management (IPM) in the world. This text book is designed to enhance the Introduction of Agricultural Entomology by presenting the core material in a simple : Tadele Shiberu Teferi.

Losses in agriculture due to arthropod pests and weeds have been estimated at over $ billion annually due to production losses and costs of control efforts.

Morris and D.F. Waterhouse set out 19 tables referencing the importance of arthropod. A survey of stored product pests, their natural enemies, grain storage and pest management approaches in northern Namibia was conducted.

The survey revealed five types of crop commodities (pearl millet, sorghum, cowpea, maize, feed mixture) stored in four types of grain stores (baskets, bag stags-flat stores, concrete bin, metal containers).

It is quite possible that additional arthropod pests rating highly in these tables will prove to be exotic to Southeast Asia (or significant parts of it) and, alternatively, that some.

The study of all economically important insects is the object of the subdiscipline “economic or applied entomology.” Agricultural entomology, a branch of economic entomology, is dedicated to the study of insects of interest to agriculture because they help increase crop production (e.g., pollinators); produce a commodity (e.g., honey, silk, lacquer); cause injury leading to economic losses.

Crop losses caused by pests, including rodents and birds, and by diseases and weeds, are defined, and previous studies reviewed. Information about losses is needed to monitor the effects of pests and diseases on crop production, in individual countries and worldwide, important for food policy and economic reasons; to make decisions and allocate resources on the study, management and control Cited by: SYSTEMS-BASED APPROACHES FOR CONTROL OF ARTHROPOD PESTS IMPORTANT TO AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION, TRADE AND QUARANTINE.

The number of pests in a landscape increased very little in relation to the number of plants found in the landscape. However, the number of arthropod pests increased at a much greater rate as more species of plants were added.
