16 INSECT-PEST MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL An important guide to published information on the life history, behavior, and other activities of insects is the classified index in the introduction to the Insecta section of the Zoological Record, published annually in London, England. The cucumber fruit varies in shape but is generally a curved cylinder rounded at both ends that can reach up to 60 cm (24 in) in length 10 cm ( in) in diameter. Cucumber plants are annual plants, surviving only one growing season and the vines can reach up to 5 m ( ft) in length.

More effective biological control of pest insects and weeds can enhance agricultural productivity while reducing the need (and associated economic and environmental costs) for pesticide application.

Strawberry is an important small fruit crop grown throughout the world due to its rich sources of vitamins and abundance of antioxidants. The US is the world’s leading producer of strawberries followed by Mexico. The main strawberry producing states are California followed by Florida, which produce >90% of the strawberries grown in the US. Strawberry production is often Author: Oscar Liburd, Elena Rhodes.

It encompasses pests and beneficial insects as well as allied forms of importance in Australian agriculture. Organized by commodities - such as cereals, sugar and tropical pasture legumes - it examines all the pest species for a particular commodity across.

The cabbage aphid is of agricultural concern because it is a vector of at least 20 viral pathogens that can cause diseases in crucifers and citrus.

Introduced pests which eat pasture plants or roots include clover root weevils, Argentine stem weevils and African black beetles.

Cereal crop pests. A number of insects eat crops such as wheat, maize and barley. The greasy cutworm bites off maize shoots, while aphids suck the sap of cereal plants and spread disease.

The webs are unsightly in the landscape and generally more numerous when the weather has been warm and wet for .A major guideline to follow when using freezing to control insect pests is to expose them to temperatures that drop as low as possible, as quickly as possible, for as long as possible.

A practical recommended treatment is °C for one week. Choosing Equipment and Establishing Procedures. Figure 1 shows the low temperature mortality of Identify common garden pests and garden bugs with our insect pictures.
