Biological
  • Plant pests are controlled by natural agents.
  • Examples include
  • 1. predators such as lady beetles
  • 2. parasites such as digger wasps
  • 3. pathogens such as bacteria to kill larvae

3
Mechanical
  • Pests are controlled by non-chemical direct
    measures.
  • Examples include
  • 1. hand picking to remove insects
  • 2. tilling to remove weeds
  • 3. trapping to catch insects or rodents

4
Chemical
  • Pests are controlled by using chemical
    pesticides.
  • Examples include
  • 1. insecticides to control insects
  • 2. fungicides to control fungus diseases
  • 3. miticides to control mites
  • 4. herbicides to control weeds
  • 5. rodenticides to control rodents
  • 6. molluscicides to control mollusks

5
Cultural
  • Pests are prevented or reduced by using methods
    to alter the plant environment.
  • Examples include
  • 1. irrigation and fertilization schedules
  • 2. sanitation practices

6
Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
  • Pest control strategies rely on multiple control
    practices.
  • Examples include
  • 1. regular monitoring to detect pests
  • 2. using traps and remote sensing equipment
  • 3. determining acceptable level of damage
    and when to initiate other control measures
