lawn damage

Homeowners can face a wide variety of pest management challenges in caring for their lawns and gardens, such as damage caused by a hairy chinch bug (Blissus leucopterus hirtus) infestation, shown here. How much do homeowners know about pesticide use, and about integrated pest management in general? Are people just using the “spray and pray” tactic, or are they using multiple forms of pest management together as part of an integrated plan? A recent study published in the open-access Journal of Integrated Pest Management explores what residents do and do not know in terms of pesticide use and integrated pest management.
