What types of pests can be controlled using biological control agents?

Biological control agents can be effective in controlling a wide range of pests, including but not limited to spider mites, thrips, aphids, whiteflies, mealybugs, scale insects, and caterpillars.

Can biological control agents harm beneficial insects or plants?

While there is always a potential risk, when used correctly, biological control agents are designed to target specific pests and generally have minimal impact on beneficial insects or plants. It is crucial to select the appropriate biological control agent for the specific pest problem and follow the recommended application guidelines to minimise any potential harm to beneficial organisms.
