Biological control occurs when pests are controlled by non-pest organisms that inhabit the surrounding crop(s), or nearby habitat. Biological control agents include: Beneficial arthropods (predators or parasitoids) and; Disease-causing microorganisms. IPM aims to maximise the contribution of biological insects to the control of crop pests.
Pest control is at least as old as agriculture, as there has always been a need to keep crops free from long ago as BC in Egypt, cats were used to control pests of grain stores such as rodents. Ferrets were domesticated by AD in Europe for use as mousers. Mongooses were introduced into homes to control rodents and snakes, probably by the ancient Egyptians. 8.

Insecticide control of armyworm in maize crops should only be considered if the number of caterpillars is high (more than 10 per plant) and the level of wasp parasitism is low. There are a range of synthethic pyrethroid and broad spectrum organophoshate insecticides registered for the control of cosmopolitan armyworm in maize. Biological control of plat pest is A. the use of man-made chemicals to control pests. B. using living natural organisms or material for control of plant pests.

Maize is subject to attack by a number of pests and diseases, mainly in insect pests (stalk borers and armyworms) and soil pests (wireworms and rootworms). Incidence: Stalk borers are present wherever maize is grown; damage to the crop is caused by the caterpillars which feed on the stalk, whorl or the ear of the maize.
