Insect Ecology and Integrated Pest Management: Improving IPM through Ecology
This is Dr. Steve Frank's blog about insect ecology and IPM in nursery production and the Green Industry. Timely and relevant, especially when crawlers have emerged or the most vulnerable portion of an insect's life cycle is present. Provides great instruction on biological control and cultural practices to prevent pest outbreaks.
