  • Description
  • Details

A completely revised edition of this highly regarded book gives a systematic account of fruit and hop pests -- their recognition, biology and control.

The scope of the original book has been greatly expanded to cover pests of fruit crops in temperate and sub-tropical regions. A major new chapter has been added on pests of sub-tropical crops (particularly citrus, fig and olive.) The pests are considered in their natural sequence of less advanced to more advanced forms, including a description of each, its life history, plants affected and damage caused. Families of pests are arranged according to generally accepted systematic systems, species appear under scientific names and show common names. Detailed general and scientific indexes allow cross-referencing between fruit and pest.
