The article reports on the biological control of rice insect pest, the Mexican rice borer, in Texas and Louisiana. According to entomologists Dr. Mo Way and Dr. Gene Reagan at Louisiana State University, the cutting height on the planting date of rice can affect the population of the insects in the second crop of rice on that same date. In addition, they discuss the concept of long-term management of an insect by taking into consideration all the aspects of biology.
