Landscape Pest Monitoring Methods and Training Managers to Use Them    (View PDF)

Steve H. Dreistadt and Mary Louise Flint

Abstract: Monitoring is the systematic collection and recording of information on pests and damage. Scale insects and aphids, respectively, can be efficiently monitored using sticky tape traps and water sensitive paper. We describe these monitoring techniques, present examples of their use in controlling citricola scale infesting Chinese hackberry and painted maple aphid infesting silver maple, and discuss our methods of training landscape pest managers to monitor.
