New resource for gardeners available

Gardeners know pests can seriously hamper yields and affect the quality of home-grown produce. A new guide is available to help homeowners and gardeners identify common pests and beneficial insects.

"Good pest management can only be achieved through proper identification," said Frannie Miller, K-State Research and Extension pesticide safety and integrated pest management coordinator and author of the guide.

The guide, which slips easily into a pocket, contains information on what the insects look like, their life stages, damage they cause, and how to control them. It contains color pictures of the 40 most common pests and beneficial insects.

"Control measures may not be needed for all insects," Miller said. "Some insects cause cosmetic damage but do not actually harm plants."

The publication lists IPM practices to help minimize pest damage.

"The hope for this guide is that it will serve as a useful resource for the people of Kansas," she said.

To order the guide, visit the K-State Research and Extension online bookstore at http://www.ksre.ksu.edu/library. Search for Pocket Guide to Common Pest Problems and Beneficials, S158. The spiral-bound guide sells for $4.10.
