Title Pocket Guide to the Beneficial Insects of New Mexico.
Publication Date 2013
Media Count 28p
Personal Author D. R. Dreesen T. R. Grasswitz
Abstract There is a wide variety of naturally occurring beneficial insects that can help keep pest insects under control if they are given a chance. Sadly, however, these insects are often misidentified and in some cases are mistaken for pests, leading to unnecessary and counter-productive insecticide applications. This publication, funded by the Western IPM Center, is intended to prevent such mistakes by highlighting some of the beneficial insects commonly found in New Mexico farms and gardens. Tips and suggestions on how to attract and retain such insects are also included.
