A pest is considered to be any organism that interferes with desirable plants in an agricultural setting, damages homes or other structures, or impacts human or animal health and well being. While one of the goals of IPM is to reduce chemical applications, there are circumstances where the most cost-effective and least damaging method for control involves pesticides. UC Resources As briefly described above, the UC IPM website offers a wealth of information including pest management guidelines for more than 65 crops and other publications including crop manuals, pest notes, multiple books in print, as well as e vents and workshops available around the state. The intentional introduction of each of these species is more or less controllable. But some biological control introductions have gone awry. The introduction of new strains of a pathogen that are virulent on resistant U.

It specifically instructs the Department to protect ornamental and native plantings as well as agricultural crops from the harm caused by exotic pest invasions. For example, a recent study showed that in cities the majority of all management costs due to invasive insect wood bores, such as the emerald ash borer Agrilus planipennisare due to the costs of hazard tree removal Diabrotica speciosa: an important soil pest in South America 5. Large amounts of stored grains are damaged both by actual consumption of the grain and by contamination with whole insects, insect fragments, and feces. Adv Ecol Res.
Principles of animal ecology. Long lists of potential exotic pests have been compiled for the United States; many of the species identified are considered of quarantine importance McGregor et al. Recent estimates of potential losses from tree pests introduced on solid wood packing materials range from several hundred dollars to more than one thousand dollars per tree. The wood-boring isopod Limnoria tripunctata arrived in the Long Beach-Los Angeles Harbor beforeperhaps on wooden ship hulls, but it remained innocuous for many years, probably because pollution from industrial, domestic, and storm wastes created a nearly sterile environment. Download Armored scale insects are among the most damaging and least understood of the pests that prey on forest trees, fruit and nut crops, landscape ornamentals, and greenhouse plants.

Many people, especially parents of school children, were upset about the potential effects of the aerial spray program for medfly eradication in California. This matter received the attention of the President's Science Advisory Committee in the United States, and its findings appear in the Report of the Environmental Pollution Panel issued in November Especially noteworthy are the data on distribution, host plants, and the kinds of damage caused by armored scales.
Estimates of loss during storage are 5. In: Pena, Jorge E. White pine blister rust, introduced aroundcauses extensive losses and makes white pine unprofitable to grow in many areas of the United States.
Most invasive plants were originally introduced as ornamental plants 83 and are also recognized as a vector on which invasive insects and pathogens can be introduced From time to time, to additional species are pests and may cause serious damage.
Hoddle also surveys native avocado regions to document potential new invasive pests and their natural enemies. Insects cause widespread damage to agricultural and forest products during storage and distribution. Chicago Press, Chicago.
Develop science-based pest management programs that are economically and environmentally sustainable and socially appropriate. Malaria is spread among humans by Anopheles mosquitoes carrying the causal organism; other human diseases result from insect-borne pathogens.
The occurrence of different selection pressures in the new habitat and geographical isolation from populations in the original range of the species prevent competition with those newly evolving genotypes. Yet the majority of the costs of invasive species are shouldered by the general public and local governments 4.
Introduced species also may have a greater competitive ability than native species, as demonstrated by the seven-spot lady bird beetle, which was introduced and distributed widely to control Russian wheat aphid and now outcompetes native lady bird beetles in several locations Obrycki, Elliott, and Giles Furthermore, databases and web sites generally are restricted both taxonomically and geographically e.
Other countries throughout the world are infested with many insect pests.
