Entomology: Principles and Practices by Robinson DH
It is impossible to devise, or even appreciate, measure which can be taken to prevent or counteract insect attacks, unless the essentials of the life history and habits of the insect concerned are understood. Part I of this book deals, with the elements of Entomology in as concise a form as possible, in order to give the student a grasp of this part of the subject. Part II. deals under their respective orders, with those individual insects which are important pest, and where methods of control are already known, these are given. A separate chapter deals with general principles underlying the control of insect damage. On a small scale, or with fruit pests, it is often worth while to take direct measure in the form of applications of insecticidal substances, Efforts has been made to show how various other operations e.g., a variation in rotation, and cultural methods can achieve the desired end.
