Basée sur l’utilisation d’auxiliaires exotiques pour lutter contre des ravageurs invasifs, la lutte biologique par acclimatation, ou lutte biologique classique, est une méthode ancienne dont les bénéfices pour l’agriculture/l’environnement/la société peuvent être très importants. Portée essentiellement par des organismes de recherche publique, cette méthode vise à un contrôle durable du ravageur via l’établissement pérenne de l’auxiliaire à l’échelle d’un territoire. Après avoir fait un rappel des tenants et aboutissants de cette méthode, je détaillerai quelques exemples récents de programmes réalisés à l’ISA qui montrent que, malgré des difficultés à concilier enjeux agronomiques et enjeux scientifiques, le maintien de cette articulation permet le plus souvent une valorisation plus diversifiée de ces opérations. 


Based on the use of exotic natural enemies to control insects pests, classical biological control (CBC) is an ancient method whose benefits for agriculture, environment or society can be very significant. Mainly supported by public research institutes, CBC aims at a sustainable control of the pest through the permanent establishment of the natural enemy on a large scale. After reviewing the ins and outs of this method, I will detail few recent examples of CBC programs carried out at ISA that show that, despite the difficulties in combining agronomic and scientific issues, maintaining this link most often allows for a more diversified development of these operations.
