Pest Management

Lacewing and Ladybugs

Ecological Pest Management Database
ATTRA has created a new, on-line pest management tool for farmers. This database highlights reduced risk materials that can be integrated with ecological pest management strategies.

This page has links to specific pest management information. Many of the fruit and vegetable guides have information specific to pest of those crops (i.e. Grapes: Organic Production, has much information on grape pests), so if you’re unable to find what you need here, search for production guides in the appropriate section, or try the Ecological Pest Management D-base, which contains information about materials to help manage a wide range of pests, as well as information about prevention of specific pests.
