Reviews the current status of recombinant baculoviruses, describes the development of genetically engineered baculoviruses for use as rapid-action biological insecticides, and provides detailed information on one particular set of recombinant viruses. The advantages and disadvantages of recombinant baculovirus insecticides, and the importance of risk-assessment studies of these genetically modified organisms, are considered. The importance of sensible regulatory strategies to the success and future prospects of this technology is discussed. -Authors
