Increased prominence is being given to the use of precision agriculture tools in order to improve the management of insect pests in agricultural systems due to the urgent need to change practices in favor of environmental resilience. Concerns about the impact of pesticides on natural resources and human health along with rapid resistance development in many important pests worldwide are pushing scientists, companies, and farmers to invest in technology as a way to overcome those challenges. The aim of the present paper is to review the techniques and scientific state-of-the-art of the use of sensors for automatic detection and monitoring of insect pests in an integrated pest management (IPM) context, highlighting topics such as machine learning and the Internet of Things, as well as discussing the future trends of automatic traps and decision support systems.View this paper.
