Invertebrate pest control within the glasshouse environment continues to present many challenges. Increasing consumer concern over the use of chemical pesticides, coupled with increasing reports of chemical resistance, is continuing to pressurise the protected horticultural industry to continue to seek alternative means of pest control. This special issue will include original research articles and reviews by leading research entomologists and associated experts. Articles will focus on the biology and ecology of various major glasshouse invertebrate pests (both indigenous and invasive species) and on advances made in regards to their control.
