The Economic Importance of Insects. The useful aspects of insects as defined by humans fall mostly into two categories: direct and indirect. Insect products such as honey, wax and silk are widely used but of limited economic importance, as also is the now widespread farming (rearing) of various insect species. Insects have tremendous economic importance. Some insects produce useful substances, such as honey, wax, lacquer, and silk. Honeybees have been raised by humans for thousands of years for honey. Adult insects, such as crickets, as well as insect larvae, are also commonly used as fishing bait. In this lesson, we'll be learning about some of the most common animals in the world: insects. Here, we'll be focusing on the economic importance.
In the last few decades there has been an ever-increasing component in most BSc Zoology degree courses of cell biology, physiology and genetics. In this article we will discuss about the economic importance of insects. Insects which produce honey, wax, lac, dyes and silk are commercially beneficial. Biological control refers to the use of a living organism to control a species pest. The group of insects which attack the injurious species (insect pest) are probably of most importance, economically. Conservation of natural enemies is an important part in any biology control effort.
