DescriptionWith administrative and financial support from its State and Private Forestry division, the USDA Forest Service has directed much effort toward developing viral pesticides that kill forest insect pests. Most environmentally benign viral pesticides are narrow host-range products (Groner 1986) that are most useful in situations where environmental concerns are paramount and application of either broad-spectrum chemical or other biological pesticides (biopesticides) are undesirable, if not illegal.
