It has been conservatively estimated that the losses inflected by to pests the food grains are of the tune of 30 at the global level. Sometimes the epidemics of pest result in the complete failure if the crop. FAO has stated that the destruction of crop pest is a subject of prime importance in agricultural production. Combating crop enemies with technical skill by using effective methods of control is pre-requiste for taking the maximum advantage of irrigation, manures and fertilisers and inproved seed to boost agricultural production. Knowledge of insects is essential as we manipulate ecosytem for increased food production and better health. Entomologists are concerned about the competition for food between humankind and insects, and some entomoligist, belive that insect control is imperative for survival of the human race. Although such a position may seem somewhat extreme, insects do consume or spoil sufficient crops and products to feed the many millions of people who strive each year.
