It provides the detailed information on economically important insect orders, including their characteristic features. It also deals with metamorphosis in insects, the ways in which beneficial insects like silkworm, honey bees and lac insects can be best exploited for the human welfare. In addition, this area of entomology focuses on the exploitation of predators and parasitoids for the management of harmful insects and pollinators for the improvement of crop yields. It also consists of detailed account on management of harmful insects by adopting various methods.

A.karthikeyan is taking this course right now and found the course difficulty to be easy.
Studying applied entomology will be helpful not only for a human being individually but also for human society as a whole. The syllabus fulfils all the aspects of the subject. Really it throws light on every aspect of interaction between insects and man. The coordinator clearly introduces the subject.
