Newly emerged natural enemies may have to disperse to find a new host habitat because upon emergence the original crop may not be available, may not be available in the proper state, or may have been replaced by a different crop which fails to supply needed resources. The latter might be a crop that no longer supports an adequate nimiber of hosts/ prey, or suitable host/prey individuals, or a crop that is either too old or young to provide important nonhosl/prey resources. The hosts/prey on crops in existence at the time of emergence may be significantly less suitable than those on the original crop.
