Pests and ‘beneficials’ in Australian cotton landscapes

A 98 page pdf guide about integrated pest management in cotton. It includes sections on pest management principles and practices, pest and beneficial insect identification. The guide takes us to a new era by introducing the role native vegetation can play in Integrated Pest Management (IPM). It outlines some simple management principles that we can use to make areas of native vegetation more effective as habitats for beneficials. For instance, putting bat houses in some trees will encourage bats that consume a considerable amount of insect pests.
