Abstract

Wasn't this past year an exciting year for insects? It was great to be an entomologist as well! The hackberry lace bugs were worse this year then I have seen them in my quarter century in Iowa. How bad were they? Let me tell you. My neighbor has a small, white dog whose color attracts the insect. The bugs were so bad on his four hackberries that the dog would only go outside when absolutely necessary. The European com borer moth flights were so heavy in August that my daughter had to stop at Kwik Trip to wash off the windshield before returning my truck (she didn't fill the tank). And the com rootworms, weren't the rootworms exciting in 1995. Let me tell you how exciting.
