Pesticides are harmful to human health. In farming, most of the pesticides (99%) accumulate in the environment. People with great exposures to pesticides, such as farmers, are at high risk of cancers. According to the news of print media (The Hindu), published during August 2011, cancer among farmers was due to disproportionate use of pesticides in Punjab. In this review, we offer an eco- friendly way to control pests that are found in farms to manage pest by using their natural enemies against them. Some beneficial insects which are harmless to people but they are born to consume farmer target pest insect.
