Pest Management Handbooks Available

Three pest management handbooks are now available from University of Illinois Extension. They contain suggestions for the control of weeds, diseases, and insect pests for the commodities or areas that each handbook covers. These handbooks help keep you up to date on new pesticides and other methods of control.

The Illinois Commercial Landscape & Turfgrass Pest Management Handbook, 1998–1999 addresses pests associated with turf, trees, shrubs, flowers, and groundcovers and includes suggestions for control. Its cost is $10; the handbook is now published bi-annually, although updates will be available in 1999. The new Illinois Homeowners’ Guide to Pest Management, which sells for $8, contains suggestions for the control of pests associated with trees, shrubs, turf, flowers, groundcovers, vegetables, fruit, and houses by homeowners and other residents. This book is intended to be revised in two or three years. The 1998 Illinois Agricultural Pest Management Handbook ($20) contains suggestions for control of pests in the commercial production of agronomic crops, livestock, and vegetable crops. It also contains information on noncrop weed control.
