Insect Pest Surveys

Each year, entomologists from AAFC Research Centres collaborate with extension agrologists, crop specialists and industry groups to conduct insect pest surveys in feild crops throughout the prairies. The surveys furnish valuable information as to what insect pest species are present at different times of the year, and also provide an estimate of their density within different crops.
