Professor van den Bosch of the University of California was one of the developers of Integrated Pest Management--the use of biological controls, improved pest knowledge and observation, and judicious application of chemicals only when absolutely necessary. His research often suggested that less or no pesticides should be applied, which made him the target of both open and clandestine attack from industry and government figures. In protest, he wrote this passionate account of what Ecology called "the ultimate social disaster of: evolving pesticide-resistant insects, the destruction of their natural predators and parasites, emergent populations of new insect pests, downstream water pollution, atmospheric pollution, the 'accidental' killing of wildlife and people, and the bankruptcies of indigenous and small farmers."As a new Introduction to this edition recounts, some lessening of dangerous overreliance on massive pesticide applications has been achieved since van den Bosch published this book in 1978--partly as a result of its influence. But the structural problems he described remain. The book has thus become a classic, along with Rachel Carson's Silent Spring.

Robert van den Bosch (31 March 1922 – 19 November 1978) was an American entomologist and proponent for the management of insect pests without the use of insecticides and especially through biological control.

Talk about The Pesticide Conspiracy


Bukus
Van was my major professor at UC Berkeley and I had an opportunity to participate in some of the research mentioned in the book. He was often outspoken but true to the science of integrated pest management and the reduction of chemical pollution. This book outlines some of the pressure exerted on the Land Grant Universities by the larger chemical companies and the pressure placed on researchers to remain in the must use pesticides group. Luckily many of his suggestions in this book were later adopted in California. He died shortly after publishing this book without seeing the fruits of his labor.

An alarming look at pest control and the people who keep us 'hooked' on deadly chemicals! What can I say more?
