The reduction in crop production that results from damages of pests and pathogenic microbes has been the major prohibitive factor restricting the further development of agricultural production worldwide. In the long-term practice of controlling agricultural pests, multiple pest management, including biological approaches, are generally recognized as possible solutions to control pest infestation effectively. Bacterial pesticides, which constitute a series of leading biopesticidal products made from various naturally occurring or genetically modified insecticidal bacteria, have attracted increasing attention as a specific means of controlling agricultural and forestry pests.
