To an entomologist, and especially an economic entomologist, the word "eradication" means the destruction of all members of a species of insect in any particular area. It means the perfection of a project in the control of an economic insect pest.
Adapted from an address given before the Australian Institute of Agricultural Science (West Australian Branch), by the Retiring President (Mr. P. N. Forte, B.Sc, Agric.) on April 13, 1956.
