Mass Production of Beneficial Organisms: Invertebrates and  Entomopathogens, Second Edition explores the latest advancements and  technologies for large-scale rearing and manipulation of natural enemies  while presenting ways of improving success rate, predictability of  biological control procedures, and demonstrating their safe and  effective use. Organized into three sections, Parasitoids and Predators,  Pathogens, and Invertebrates for Other Applications, this second  edition contains important new information on production technology of  predatory mites and hymenopteran parasitoids for biological control,  application of insects in the food industry and production methods of  insects for feed and food, and production of bumble bees for  pollination.

Beneficial organisms include not only insect  predators and parasitoids, but also mite predators, nematodes, fungi,  bacteria and viruses. In the past two decades, tremendous advances have  been achieved in developing technology for producing these organisms.  Despite that and the globally growing research and interest in  biological control and biotechnology applications, commercialization of  these technologies is still in progress. This is an essential reference  and teaching tool for researchers in developed and developing countries  working to produce “natural enemies” in biological control and  integrated pest management programs.
