    Can anyone help? The question seems simple at first but it is worth 3 marks.

    Suggest why extensive research and trials are necessary before pesticides are made avaliable to the public.

    The rhinoceros beetle is a pest which damages cocnut palms growing on the South Pacific Islands. One method of control is to introduce a virus which kills the beetles. The virus was first used on the island of Tonga in 1971.

    Suggest TWO techniques which could be combined with the introduction of the virus to produce effective pest management schemes.
