The changes in the population size of two types of treated plots in the same interval. Introduction: Biological control agents are the natural enemies like predation, parasitism, and other methods that are used to control the pests like weeds, insects, mites, nematodes, and so on in order to generate a pest-free- yields. The biological control agent such as Thelohania solenopsae is a natural enemy of the red imported fire ants. This microsporidian can decline the ant’s colony by infecting and shrinking the ovaries of the queen which are the female reproducing ants.
