Chapter 2, Biological control, introduction and acclimatization of auxiliary insects, will guide you, after a brief history and definitions, across predator or parasitoid insects used in biological control, with some examples of use against invasive insects, and two case studies (Bemisia tabaci and Dacus ciliatus). A rehearsal of Chapter 1, important for biological control agents, is the step between introduction and establishment. Successes and failures in biological control programs will be presented, focusing on introduction-acclimatIzation, and control of target populations. At the frontiers of biological control, you will see a brief overview of use and prospects of the Sterile Insect Technique (SIT), Release of Insects carrying a Dominant Lethal (RIDL) and Incompatible Insect Technique (IIT). Finally, the perception of biological control will be discussed.
