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

Previous to the discovery of the gladiolus thrips in North America in 1929, the gladiolus plant was considered practically free from serious insect injury. With the introduction and rapid distribution of the thrips, however, the study of insects attacking the gladiolus has demanded the attention of entomologists as well as commercial growers in many states. At the present time a complete list of insects which feed on this plant would comprise a considerable number of species. Even though some of these are of only secondary importance, they may under some conditions become pests of serious consequence to the individual grower. The purpose of this bulletin is to familiarize the grower with the habits, type of injury and the control of the more common gladiolus insect pests.
