This paper focuses on Michel de Certeau ' s concepts of strategies and tactics and on resistance against power and its apparatuses in daily life practices. Different forms of resistance in daily life practices, tactics, which have been developed for eroding and distorting main strategies of the power especially by the subaltern groups such as migrants, constitute essential scope of this Author: Gaye Gokalp Yilmaz.

Whellan. New Books. review article. New Books. Pages: Published online: 06 Jul The commonly-used control methods for locust outbreaks, which are based on the use of synthetic insecticides, are extremely costly.

In addition, the large amounts of non-specific toxicants that are sprayed over affected areas pollute. In the late eighties large-scale control operations were carried out to control a major desert locust upsurge in Africa.

For the first time since the banning of organochlorine pesticides these operations relied mainly on non-persistent pesticides such as organophosphates and pyrethroids.

The amount of pesticides sprayed and the area covered were probably the highest in the. Integrated Pest Management covers these topics and more. It explores the current ecological approaches in alternative solutions, such as biological control agents, parasites and predators, pathogenic microorganisms, pheromones and natural products as well as ecological approaches for managing invasive pests, rats, suppression of weeds, safety.

This strategy relies on the timely detection and control of locust populations before they reach plague proportions. Its success depends on a continuing flow of information regarding the ecological conditions in the field and the whereabouts of locusts so that control operations can be planned and carried out more effectively.

A successful and sustainable pest management depends on the knowledge of the strategy, pest biology and pest ecology in agroecosystem. The development of an effective pest control strategy is reliant and contingent on ten pillars including: 1) correct identification of the pest and its pest-status.

It is a flexible system that makes good use of local resources and the latest research, technology, knowledge and experience. Ultimately, IPM is a site-specific strategy for managing pests in the most cost-effective, environmentally sound and socially acceptable way.

Rather, the aim is to reduce pest populations to less than damaging numbers. The control tactics used in integrated pest management include pest resistant or tolerant plants, and cultural, physical, mechanical, biological, and chemical control. Applying multiple control tactics minimizes the chance that insects will adapt to any one tactic.

Based on a symposium sponsored by the Board on Agriculture, this comprehensive book explores the problem of pesticide resistance; suggests new approaches to monitor, control, or prevent resistance; and identifies the changes in public policy necessary to protect crops and human health from the ravages of pests.

This book provides an introduction to findings over the past 50 years on relationships of flying insects to features of their atmospheric environment, and in particular to progress made in establishing the scale and nature of the phenomenon of migration by flight.

Much of this progress has come from a uniquely comprehensive degree of documentation provided by international Cited by: IPM is the combining of appropriate pest control tactics into a single plan to reduce pests and their damage to an acceptable level.

pest control tactics may include: host resistance, biological control, cultural control, mechanical control, sanitation, and chemical control. A pest that occurs regularly and will usually affect crop yield.

These pests are not always present, but can be a problem from time to time. THis only applies to pests that are mobile or die out at the end of the season.

A warm winter may cause an outbreak of an occasional pest because it survives winter. Gathering PEST, PESTEL and STEEPLED information. In order to perform PEST (or any other variation of it) managers have to gather as much relevant information as possible about the firm’s external environment.

Nowadays, most information can be found on the internet relatively easy, fast and with little cost. Abstract. In recent decades, the views on the mechanics of long-range migrations of insects have diverged into two main lines: (1) French and White (), Shaw (), Hurst (, ), and Mikkola and Salmensuu (), working on Lepidoptera presumed downwind direction of migrations and analysed their data with the aid of wind trajectories which describe atmospheric Cited by:.

Cultural Control. Surprisingly simple modifications of a pest's environment or habitat often prove to be effective methods of pest control.

As a group, these tactics are usually known as cultural control practices because they frequently involve variations of standard horticultural, silvicultural, or animal husbandry practices.The strategy and tactics involved in the integrated pest management (IPM) of insect pests of The endemic type of rice pest fauna may be related to the difficulty of biological control of rice insect pests unless it is integrated under a scheme of pest management.

Mobile pests are polyphagous and multivoltine pests that move freely over large areas and between crops in diversified agroecosystems.

They are migratory, but the distance over which they move is much shorter.
