Pest Identification

Accurate identification of the insect, weed or other pest and its life stage is critical.

With correct species ID, you can make an informed decision about how best to control the pest, or whether control is necessary at all.

It is also important to understand the life cycle and biology of the pest to know how much of this pest is tolerable, what will happen if no control is used, what is the most vulnerable stage of the pest, and when is the best time to spray if pesticides are used.

The person responsible for monitoring will benefit from training in pest ID.
