An attempt has been made to present the terminology in entomology and pest management in the most authentic and comprehensive way keeping the requirements of teachers and researchers in mind.

Most of the terms have been given in encyclopedic form. Terms relating to the close relatives of insects such as mites and ticks and some other organisms which are pests of crops have also been included.

Appendices give useful information regarding various prefixes and suffixes used in formation of terms; and terms based on color and shapes, etc. have been included at the end for better understanding of the subject.
