Landscape ID cards
Landscape pest identification cards.

Portable pest identification tool available through ANR catalog

UC IPM has created a set of pocket-sized, laminated cards to help landscape maintenance professionals and home gardeners identify and manage common pest problems found in the landscape.

Succinct text and more than 200 photos provide details about 80 common insects and mites, 40 diseases, 20 beneficial insects, and a variety of other invertebrate pests and disorders. Each card includes a description of the pest and close-up, color photographs of important symptoms and life stages. The set also includes suggestions for least toxic management options for each pest.

Landscape Pest Identification Cards, ANR Publ. 3513, is an excellent companion to the UC IPM books Pests of Landscape Trees and Shrubs, ANR Publ. 3359; Lawn and Residential Landscape Pest Control, ANR Publ. 3510; and Landscape Maintenance Pest Control, ANR Publ. 3493. Many county UC Cooperative Extension offices also stock these publications.

The cards are modeled after the very successful Tree Fruit Pest Identification and Monitoring Cards, ANR Publ. 3426, which help readers identify and monitor major insect and mite pests and several important diseases in California deciduous tree fruits and nuts.
