Abstract

One of the foundational elements of integrated pest management is the correct identification of pest and beneficial species. This presentation will provide participants an opportunity to test their skills in the arena of common beneficial insect identification. Beneficial insects, also called natural enemies, attack crop-damaging pest species and as a group are frequently common in Iowa's agro-ecosystem. Six common beneficial insects from 2007 that are found in corn, soybeans, or alfalfa will be presented in a multiple-choice format. Circle the correct letter for each insect photograph shown in the accompanying PowerPoint presentation. The key identifying characteristics are listed for each species.
