Insect control begins with correct identification

By Doug Rich

The first step in an integrated pest management program is identification. Mistaken identity can result in ineffective control actions.

That is why collections like those at the Enns Entomology Museum at the University of Missouri are so important.

The collection includes nearly 6 million specimens from Missouri and around the world.
