Insect pest test 3

Scouting and management theory

Pest Surveillance The watch kept on a pest for the purpose of decision making
Insect pest survey A detailed collection of insect population information at a particular time in a given area
Sampling Unit A proportion of the habitable space from which insect counts are taken
A Sample (in surveying for insect pests) A group of sampling units
Sampling Universe The habitat in which the population occurs
Sampling Technique The method used to collect information from a single sampling unit
Sampling Program The procedure that employs the sampling technique to obtain a sample and make a density estimate
List three insect activities detected and documented by pest surveillance Crop invasion d. Feeding b. Long-range migration e. Reproduction c. Local movement
List three ways to determine insect sampling units Insects per unit surface area b. Sweep nets are used making contact with only a portion of the plant being swept c. Insect light traps
Sampling Programs direct how a sample is to be taken, and include four parameters. Name two Insect stage to sample c. Spatial pattern to obtain sampling units b. Sampling-unit number d. Timing of samples
The two types of sampling programs are Extensive programs b. Intensive programs
When using in situ counts, for any sampling technique one must also assess two other things: The state of the plant b. Density of the sampling units present
The two basic requirements of insect trapping for sampling are The insects must move b. The trap must hold the captured insects
The design of an insect sampling program involves at least four basic dimensions: a. Insect stage to sample b. Number of sampling units to take c. Time to sample d. Pattern of sampling
a. Insect stage to sample b. Number of sampling units to take c. Time to sample d. Pattern of sampling Light b. A shape attractive to insects
Soil is often sampled for insects by one of the following methods (list four) Berlese funnels b. Sieving c. Washing d. Floatation
