Pest management of two non-interacting pests in presence of common predator

  • D. K. Bhattacharya
  • S. Karan


The paper considers two mutually independent pests in presence of their common predator and discusses their control biologically by release of additional predators and chemically by using non-selective non-residual pesticide. It also verifies the results by special choice of parameters.
