Economic entomology is a field of entomology, which involves the study of insects that benefit or harm humans, domestic animals, and crops. Insects that cause losses are termed as pests. Some species can cause indirect damage by spreading diseases and these are termed as vectors. Those that are beneficial include those reared for food such as honey, substances such as lac or pigments and for their role in pollinating crops and controlling pests.

  • L’entomologie économique est une branche de l'entomologie qui étudie les interactions entre les insectes et l'homme et ses activités. L'intérêt de certains insectes pour l'homme a été depuis longtemps exploité, certains ont même été domestiqués pour la production de substances alimentaires (miel), voire consommés (entomophagie) ou industrielles (soie, laque, pigments), ou pour leur rôle dans la production agricole (pollinisation des cultures et lutte contre les ravageurs). À l'inverse, d'autres espèces ont été jugées nuisibles en raison des dommages causés aux personnes, à leurs animaux, cultures ou récoltes, soit directement comme parasites et ravageurs, soit indirectement comme vecteurs de maladies.
