Bugs and Blades
A pest is a living thing that causes people harm. Mosquitos are a common pest people deal with in Iowa during the summer. Pests in crop fields harm plants causing less yield or damaged harvest. There are three main types of pests that growers deal with: insect pests, weeds, and diseases. In these three lessons, you will learn about each of these groups of pests. These lessons will use the principles of Integrated Pest Management in managing crop pests.

This curriculum includes three lessons, one for each pest group. The lesson directions are designed to be used with the included set of specimens. Fresh field samples could also be used. Each lesson is an introduction to that pest group with a focus on identifying pest issues for better management of pests.
