dc.description.abstractBiological control is a widely available method of additional or alternative pest control which utilizes natural enemies to control crop pests. For successful control of grain aphids in wheat, predation during the early season and throughout the entire field is crucial to prevent aphid population outbreaks and crop damage. I documented the growth and movement of carabid beetles, a beetle family of generalist predators, in wheat fields to assess their potential as biocontrol agents for wheat pests.en_US
