Insects as Pests

  • Hans-Dietrich ReckhausEmail author
Chapter
Part of the Fascinating Life Sciences book series (FLS)

Abstract

Insects can threaten the well-being, performance or the health of humans, influence their homes, and be a danger to domestic animals. Some insects also disrupt the normal development of crops, reduce the value of animal and plant products, and make them unusable.
