Homeowner Pest Guide Available

May 22, 2002

The Home, Yard, and Garden Pest Guide,. University of Illinois Extension Circular 1374, is available to homeowners and other residents to help them with their pest needs. Just as the Commercial Landscape & Turfgrass Pest Management Handbook is available in book and CD formats for landscape professionals, the Home, Yard, and Garden Pest Guide is available in both formats.

Insect pests, diseases, and weeds of turf, trees, shrubs, flowers, fruit, and vegetables are addressed, as are household insect pests. There is also a chapter on integrated pest management (IPM) methods and pesti-cide use and safety. A variety of IPM controls, both nonchemical and pesticide options, are given for the various pests.

The guide is available as a book for $20 and as a CD for $26, with additional shipping charges as applicable. They can be ordered at (800)345 6087.
