Insects associated with alfalfa seed production

Description

This field guide was prepared to enable growers of seed alfalfa to quickly identify their pest and beneficial insects. The important distinguishing features are indicated on the plates by arrows. These features can be readily seen with a hand lens or magnifying glass. Economic thresholds are based on the average number of insects captured in five 90° sweeps.
