Insect & Pest Info
The African black beetle is an introduced beetle that appears similar to cockchafers but generally occurs earlier in the year and is usually found on or under the soil. Both adults and larvae attack pastures and cereals. The beetles are of considerable economic importance because, while they attack cereals, they also attack a wide range of horticultural crops and long-term pastures. Damage by these beetles and their larvae can be reduced by delaying autumn sowing, or applying insecticide seed treatment. African black beetle larvae are soil dwelling and are typical white, soft-bodied scarab grubs. Late stage larvae are mm in length.

Photo gallery of insect pests in sorghum. Sorghum is susceptible to insect pests from emergence to late grain fill. Early sorghum pests include armyworms and soil insects. These pests are normally present in a grain sorghum crop in low numbers where their damage can be tolerated. However, seasonal conditions can sometimes stimulate the build up of a large population of one or more of these and they can cause significant damage. Seed dressings to combat soil insects are now commonly available and may be the most effective control as well as the least disruptive to natural enemies. Pests, such as aphids and rutherglen bugs, can be deterred by choosing open-headed type sorghum hybrids.

Pest control is the regulation or management of a species defined as a pest , a member of the animal kingdom that impacts adversely on human activities. The human response depends on the importance of the damage done and will range from tolerance, through deterrence and management, to attempts to completely eradicate the pest. Pest control measures may be performed as part of an integrated pest management strategy.

Очевидно, Стратмор вдруг задумался:. У Сьюзан имелся на это ответ. - Коммандер, - она снова попыталась настоять на своем, - нам нужно поговорить. - Минутку! - отрезал Стратмор, вопросительно глядя на Хейла. - Мне нужно закончить разговор.
