The literature dealing with economic entomology is extensive, and the following list is merely representative. Descriptions of economically important insects (mainly North American species) may be found in standard textbooks of applied entomology, for example, Pfadt (1985), Davidson and Lyon (1987), Olkowski et al. (1991), and Metcalf and Metcalf (1993). Volume 12 of Kerkut and Gilbert's (1985) treatise is devoted entirely to insect control, and in the volumes edited by Pimentel (1991, 2002) all aspects of insect-pest management in agriculture are considered. Insecticide resistance is discussed by Georghiou and Taylor (1977), Georghiou and Saito (1983), Metcalf (1989), Hassall (1990), Roush and Tabashnik (1990), Georghiou (1990), and Denholm and Rowland (1992). The economic and environmental costs of chemical pesticides are examined by Pimentel et al. (in Pimentel, 1991, Vol. 1) and Pimentel etal. (1992). Coats (1994) looks at the risks from natural versus synthetic insecticides.

Biological control is the subject of the volumes edited by Huffaker (1971), Huffaker and Messenger (1976), Ridgway and Vinson (1977), Hoy and Herzog (1985), Franz (1986), Baker and Dunn (1990), Barbosa (1998), and Bellows and Fisher (1999), and the texts of van den Bosch et al. (1982), Waterhouse and Norris (1987), Croft (1990), and DeBach and Rosen (1991).
