Extension and Experiment Station Publications
It can be very challenging to locate information about individual ISU Extension publications via the library website. Quick Search will list the name of the series, but it will not list individual publications within each series. The Parks Library Reference Collection has a List of Current Series, Serial Publications (Series Publications of Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service), published as of March 2004. It lists each publication from 1888-2004 (by title and publication number - and in some cases it will show an author name).

Abstract

During the last few years there has been considerable loss experienced in some of the states to the east of us from the attacks of certain weevils, known commonly as “Bill Bugs,” upon corn when it is just coming above ground, but up to the present year we have had no information of injuries from these insects in this state. It seems, however, that we are no longer to be favored in this respect as reports and specimens from a number of localities as well as a considerable abundance of the insects in the vicinity of Ames points to the increase of the pests and probable serious losses another year.

There are several different species concerned in the work in the states east of us, and as most of these occur in Iowa it is probable that we will have to consider most of them in time as destructive species, but during the present season we have had but two species sent to us or collected here in such numbers as to indicate any serious abundance.
