Effects of pesticides on natural enemies

Pesticides can have direct effects, such as killing the natural enemies or causing their non-emergence from eggs or pupae, but they can also have indirect effects, such as reduced fertility (egg laying), problems with regard to moulting, or a repellent effect. Both direct and indirect effects have been considered in the assessment of the side effects.
