Insect pests inflict damage to humans, farm animals and crops. Insect pests have been defined by Williams () as any insect in the wrong place. Depending on the structure of the ecosystem in a given area and man's view point, a certain insect might or might not be considered a Size: KB.
Weather information is critical for developing pest models and decision tools that are useful for managing pest problems. It is particularly important for efficient scheduling of pesticide applications, reducing unintended consequences of chemical residues on the ecosystem, and preventing the emergence of pest resistance that follows repeated use of chemical by: 5.

Insect Infestation (i) Harmful Insects. Insects harmful to farm products, including spices are. usually controlled by agricultural chemicals during. cultivation. But spices can also be damaged by insects, including mites during storage.
Such pests are called “stored. grain insects.” Of the many harmful insects, moths and beetles are most. Hence, to reduce the wastage and meet growing demand, application of fly spray has increased and in turn boosted the crop protection insecticides market.
New technological advancement in the pest management and procedures, increased the efficiency of insect repellents. This is expected to boost the product demand over the forecast period.
