Vere Supervtser , Gamlen Insects Finally, with the coming of some warmer weather, garden. vegetable crops ~re showing a gro~h. Also along with the crops are the insect pests thin feed up- on ,these plants. It is time to in- spect ~ garden ~or ~3ests and eliminate .them in some manner. Garden pests are 6ivided into two large group~ based on selec- tion of food plants. One group are .pests which feed on primar- ily one species or closely related species. Such pests as onion maggot, toronto hornworm, squash vine borer and many 91~Md species are in ~is group. The other group are ~ose pests ,that feed on wide varieties of vegetables. Often called general feeders, such pests are grasshop- pers, cutworms, weevils, beetles, and white grubs. injury to a plant depends ,on the .type of insoot. Chewing insects will destroy leaves, stems, or particular plant ,parts such as the whorl or buds. S~cking in- sects extract juices from leaves and stems which retards growth, flowering and seed production and also can cause disease from toxic salivary secretions. .Cultural controls, such as eli- ruination of host plants, crop ro- ~tions, removal or burning of .crop residues +and planned plant- mg and harvesting, reduce in- sect pest populations and are economical .
