Plants are injured by insects as they feed, make homes, and lay eggs on and in plants. Often this injury damages the leaves, stems, and roots of plants. In many cases the perpetrator of this injury will not be present on the plant when you arrive. Only symptoms or signs may remain. Like a crime scene investigator you can use these clues to help identify the perpetrator. Accurate identification will enable you to design the right strategy for managing the pest in the timeliest and most efficacious way. Case studies of chewers, suckers, gall makers, leaf miners, and borers will focus on biology and management of several key pests.
