Entomological warfare (EW) is a type of biological warfare that uses insects to interrupt supply lines by damaging crops, or direct harm to enemy combatants and civilian populations.

There have been several programs which have attempted to institute this methodology; however, there has been limited application of entomological warfare against military or civilian targets, Japan being the only.

The procedures involved in a coordinated approach to minimising the risk and dealing with insect attack are detailed below. Preventive Measures The first step in the control of biological pests is the adoption of preventive measures to minimise infestations.

Insect - Insect Insect Attack book Damage to growing crops: Insects are responsible for two major kinds of damage to growing crops. First is direct injury done to the plant by the feeding insect, which eats leaves or burrows in stems, fruit, or roots.

There are hundreds of pest species of this type, both in larvae and adults, among orthopterans, homopterans, heteropterans, coleopterans, lepidopterans, and.

The eastern and Carolina hemlock is now under attack and in the early stages of being decimated by the hemlock wooly adelgid (HWA), Adelges tsugae.

Adelgids are small, soft-bodied aphids that feed exclusively on coniferous plants using piercing-sucking mouthparts. They are an invasive insect and thought to be of Asian origin.

Insect attack has become a serious agricultural problem responsible for reductions in crop productivity. Each year, an estimated 25% of the food crop is destroyed by insects. Plants confront pests by producing secondary metabolites such as terpenes, phenolics, nitrogen- and sulfur-containing compounds that either kill or retard its development.

Plant defence may directly affect insect growth and development through toxic secondary metabolites or indirectly by recruiting the natural enemies of the insect pest through herbivore-induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) and extrafloral nectar (Arimura et al. ; Karban ; War et al. ).Induced resistance in response to herbivore attack makes host plants phenotypically plastic and plant.

Most insect parasitoids only attack a particular life stage of one or several related species. The immature parasitoid develops on or within a pest, feeding on body fluids and organs, eventually leaving the host to pupate or emerging as an adult. The life cycle of the pest and parasitoid can coincide, or that of the pest may be altered by the.

It is an effective method to control weeds and also serves as a refuge for predatory insects like ground beetles.

Mulch also helps the soil to retain moisture and stay cool, which promotes plant vigor and tolerance to insect attack. Remain calm and still if a single stinging insect is flying around.

Much of this is due to insect attack.

In addition, grain which is not lost is severely reduced in quality by insect damage.
