Summary
COI synopsis: Man, in his attempts to dominate the planet, has a rival; it means a continuing, unceasing battle for survival. It’s the insect war. To win it we need a continuous supply of new ideas. Another version of biological control. Study the food chain in detail, and you can find out which insects eat which - and carefully breed the predators. It’s a method already protecting English apples.
