Utilizing Host Plants in an Integrated Pest Management Control Program
Insect vectors can be serious pests of production and display crops, of both woody and herbaceous plants. This presentation will highlight an ongoing Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program designed to reduce conventional chemical control methods of selected insect pests.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
There are numerous seasonal insect pests which damage and even destroy production plant materials. These pests also ruin display gardens, by their predation of the plants, making them unsuitable for view, by eating stems, leaves, and flowering parts of these plants.
