Abstract

The beet army worm, Spodoptera exigua, is a widely distributed polyphagous pest of economically important crops worldwide.
The management of this pest insect continues to face many challenges. Despite synthetic chemicals posing a serious
threat to the environment, these remain the conventional approach for controlling S. exigua in the field. An over-reliance on
chemical control has not only led to selection for resistance to insecticides and to a reduction of natural enemies, but has also
polluted various components of ecosystem. Given these increasing pressures on the ecosystem, there is a need to implement
integrated pest management (IPM) approaches exploiting a wider range of tools (biotechnological approaches, microbial
control, biological control, cultural control, and use of host plant resistance) for an alternative to chemical control. The IPM
approach can not only reduce the hazard of chemical residues in the environment and associated health problems, but may
also provide best strategies to control insect pests. This review synthesizes published information on insecticide resistance
of S. exigua and explores alternative IPM approaches to control S. exigua.
