Ec96-1555 Insect Pest Management Strategies For Yards And Gardens, Frederick P. Baxendale, Robert J. Wright

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

A growing awareness of problems associated with overusing pesticides has prompted many home gardeners and landscape managers to seek alternative methods of insect control. Integrated pest management (IPM) uses suitable methods in a compatible manner to maintain pest densities below levels of unacceptable injury.

IPM principles can be applied to all pest groups (insects, mites, weeds, plant diseases and vertebrates), and urban as well as agricultural settings. This publication will discuss how integrated pest management can be applied to insect and mite management in yards and gardens.

G96-1300 Insects That Feed On Corn Ears, David L. Keith, J. F. Witkowski Jan 1996

G96-1300 Insects That Feed On Corn Ears, David L. Keith, J. F. Witkowski

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

How to identify mature and immature insects that infest and damage ears of corn.

Several kinds of insects infest the developing ears of corn, raising farmers' concerns and sometimes causing economic damage. Some of these insects can reduce both yield and quality of seed corn, pop corn, sweet corn and field corn. Control decisions depend in part on the economics of the corn crop produced. In many cases, particularly in field corn where the value of the crop per acre is somewhat lower, the insects may not be sufficiently damaging to require control. The higher value of seed corn compared ...


G96-1277 Pine Moths, Mark O. Harrell, Frederick P. Baxendale, J. Ackland Jones Jan 1996

G96-1277 Pine Moths, Mark O. Harrell, Frederick P. Baxendale, J. Ackland Jones

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Pine moths can seriously damage pine trees. This NebGuide helps you recognize damage and symptoms, identify the pest, and choose a control.

Pine moths are serious pests of pines in Nebraska. Larvae (caterpillars) damage trees by tunneling just beneath the bark of the trunk and branches (Figure 1), most commonly on the trunk just below a branch. The tunnels they make can girdle the trunk or branches or physically weaken them so they are easily broken by wind or snow (Figure 2). Heavily infested trees are often deformed and are sometimes killed.


G96-1302 Managing Varroa In The Midwest, Marion D. Ellis, Frederick P. Baxendale Jan 1996

G96-1302 Managing Varroa In The Midwest, Marion D. Ellis, Frederick P. Baxendale

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

There are important regional differences in varroa population dynamics and control. This NebGuide offers recommendations on varroa management for beekeepers in the Midwest.

Varroa management has become an essential aspect of successful beekeeping since the mite was first discovered in the United States in 1987. Unlike most parasites which coexist with their host, varroa eventually destroy honey bee colonies of European descent. A good understanding of this important bee parasite is essential for successful beekeeping.


G96-1295 Scabies, Wayne L. Kramer, Donald E. Mock Jan 1996

G96-1295 Scabies, Wayne L. Kramer, Donald E. Mock

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

The life cycle, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of scabies infestations in humans is addressed.

Scabies is a contagious disease of humans and other mammals. It is caused by the mite, Sarcoptes scabiei, which burrows into the dead layer of the human skin (stratum corneum). Sarcoptic mites are obligate parasites which spend most of their lives in burrows in the skin. If the mite invades a person's skin, and establishes itself, symptoms of scabies will become apparent, although it may take four to six weeks.

Scabies is transmitted from person to person by close personal and prolonged skin contact. Transmission ...


G96-1305 Water Runoff From Sprinkler Irrigation: A Case Study, Norman L. Klocke, William L. Kranz, C. Dean Yonts, Kelly Wertz Jan 1996

G96-1305 Water Runoff From Sprinkler Irrigation: A Case Study, Norman L. Klocke, William L. Kranz, C. Dean Yonts, Kelly Wertz

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

This NebGuide illustrates the influence of soil texture, topography and irrigation system characteristics on potential runoff.

When water is applied to a field through a sprinkler irrigation system, it should soak into the soil where it lands rather than drain to a low spot or off the field altogether. Runoff causes non-uniformity of water application, poor irrigation efficiency and possible leaching of chemicals to the groundwater. Some systems like LEPA (Low Energy Precision Application) are designed so water does not immediately soak into the soil. However, proper LEPA designs also call for tillage practices that hold the water on the ...

Ec96-780 Equipment Wheel Spacing For Ridge-Till And No-Till Row Crops, Robert D. Grisso, Paul J. Jasa, Alice J. Jones, Todd A. Peterson Jan 1996

Ec96-780 Equipment Wheel Spacing For Ridge-Till And No-Till Row Crops, Robert D. Grisso, Paul J. Jasa, Alice J. Jones, Todd A. Peterson

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Use of ridge-till and no-till systems has increased dramatically since the early 1980s when ridge-planting equipment and conservation tillage cultivators became readily available. The ridge-till system involves the establishment and annual re-forming of permanent, single-row ridges into which crops are planted year after year. To obtain maximum productivity with the ridge-plant system (and many believe with no-till systems), all wheel traffic should be confined to interrows. Wheel traffic on ridges can alter the ridge profile and condition of crop residue. Ridge deformation or excessive tire sinkage can affect subsequent planter performance, crop emergence and the overall productivity of both ridge-till ...
