Herbivorous insects and pathogens that attack pest weeds are also considered bio- control agents. Biological control is a part of natural. Biopesticide products (including beneficial insects) are now available commercially for the control of pest and diseases.

The overall aim of biopesticide research is to make these biopesticide products available at farm level at an affordable price, and this would become a possible tool in the integrated pest management strategy.
