Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Migratory insects are usually the most devastating pests of crops and are broadly distributed throughout the world. Their migratory behavior is one of the most important factors that can induce sudden pest outbreaks. Monitoring and early warning, as well as integrated pest management technologies, play significant roles in managing pest outbreaks.

The themes of this Special Issue include migratory insect occurrence and damage, overwintering regulation, migration regulation, monitoring and early warning, and integrated pest management technologies; the type of papers that will be accepted include reviews, reports, and research articles.
