Western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte) and northern corn rootworm (Diabrotica barberi (Smith and Lawrence)) are major pests of maize in the USA. These pests have been managed with a variety of tactics over the last century. Both Diabrotica spp. have adapted to crop rotation...

Plant volatiles provide herbivorous arthropods with information that allows them to discriminate between host and non-host plants. Volatiles may also indicate plant stress status, and natural enemies can use herbivore-induced plant volatiles as cues for prey location. Neighbouring plants may also...

The history of genetic improvement of arthropod natural enemies is reviewed briefly and I describe the successful genetic improvement and deployment in California almond orchards of a pesticide-resistant predatory mite. Lessons learned from our efforts to deploy this and other natural enemies in...
