Pests of agricultural importance are the species that can compromise the production of cultivated plants. In the case of insects, population control has been carried out by analyzing the collection of individuals in traps, so that they are analyzed for the measurement of insecticides as well as their ideal amount of application. In this sense, the objective of this work is to apply deep learning techniques in Computer Vision using Convolutional Neural Networks in order to detect insects in images, which are captured in the accumulated samples in the traps placed in the plantation.
