    Arthropod pests damage a considerable proportion of food crops. Because the option of relying strictlyon pesticides for arthropod control is becoming more unfeasible due to resistance, pesticide-relatedhealth risks, and an upcoming world food shortage, development of alternative strategies requiresimmediate attention. Because generalist predators feed on diverse assemblages of insect species,tre ...
