Abstract

The special section on Smarter Pest Control (16 August, p. 728) highlighted
the threats that chemical pesticides pose to human health and the environment, and some of the smart alternatives, including genetically modifi ed (GM) crops. However, an important and emerging technology against insect pests was overlooked: biological pesticides.
