    MINIATURE JUNGLE It's amazing what's out there in the back yard. I got myself a digital camera a couple of years ago. It has a brilliant macro focus ability that lets you get to within 2cm of the subject. The opportunity to go on lots of wildlife photo-safaris in my own garden was just too good to resist. Below are a selection of insects and spiders that share my garden with me. Click on the thumbnails to see the photograph. Soldierfly Chloromyia formosa A bright, shiny fly that frequents the garden compost heap. Brilliant, iridescent green and bronze coloured. Handsome boy ain't he? Figwort Weevil Cionus scrophulariae Doing an amazing impression of bird droppings are these two mating weevils. This weevil feeds on Mullein and Figwort plants Ichnuemon Wasp Unknown species This parasitic wasp is busy drilling through the sealed entrance to a leafcutter bee's nest cells. The wasp lays its eggs on the host larvae and when the wasp larvae hatches it eats the host. Nasty, but ingenious! Mason Bee Osmia rufa A common bee in many gardens. The lovely, foxy red haired Mason Bee, nests in all sorts of holes in timber and masonry. I drilled holes in old fence posts and within days there were loads of Mason Bees taking up residence.

    49. How To Use Insects As Food
    HOW TO USE insects AS FOOD. insects are being eaten in most of the world. During the Pacific war prisoners supplemented their diets with insects.
    Insects are being eaten in most of the world. Archaeological evidence tells us that entomophagy has been practiced since mankind first made an appearance on this planet. It would appear that all levels of society consumed various insects and today they remain an important food source in many parts of the world. Insects are important to Australian aborigines, as well as African, Middle Eastern and Asian populations. Filipino farmers flood their fields to capture mole crickets that are sold to restaurants while the Thais eat crickets, grasshoppers, beetle larvae and dragonflies. During the Pacific war prisoners supplemented their diets with insects. Aztecs favored the corn ear caterpillars while in China, bee larvae is eaten raw or fried. Of course for the average person, a good steak and a salad would be your first choice but during uncertain times, it is always good to have alternatives such as insects. Insects are low in carbohydrates, high in protein along with fat and calories which are needed in a survival situation. For example, crickets and grasshoppers have approximately 24 percent protein. Grasshoppers have 200 calories per 100 grams (approximately 900 calories per pound - some studies show up to 1,200 calories per pound) with 7-9 percent fat comparing to steak at 250 calories per 100 grams. Also crickets have amino acids required in the human diet. Beef provides 200-300 calories per 100 grams with 18 percent protein and 18 percent fat.

    Information on techniques to combat against pests in the seed and popcorn industries. Doc.html
    Purpose: To establish an on-going, year-round pest management program to reduce or eliminate any damage incurred by insects, rodents, or birds. This would include both physical damage to the seed and the defacing of the bags that contains these high cash value products.
    History of the problems:
    The seed industry in the United States is rapidly advancing in the manipulation of the genetic structures of plants in order to create varieties that will grow better and produce more. However, with all of this modern technology, most seed companies are decades behind in the protection of their products from stored product insect pests and rodent after it has been harvested. It is easier and more economical to save a bag of seed than it is to grow a bag to replace it I. Monitoring and Inspection

      Collaborative Thematic Unit
        Theme: Insects
    by Julie Parks and Eileen Sullivan FOCUS : Students will explore the world of insects to expand their knowledge of ants, bees, butterflies, caterpillars and ladybugs. GRADE LEVEL : Primary OBJECTIVES 1. Identify the characteristics of an insect. 2. Identify habitats of insects. 3. Describe the process of metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. 4. Identify the various roles of bees such as queen, workers, robbers, etc. in making honey. 5. Identify the parts of an ant's anatomy and the roles within an ant colony. 6. Identify the characteristics of a ladybug. SETTING THE STAGE: PRE-ACTIVITIES Insect Library : Prepare your classroom for a unit on insects by collecting books, magazines and pamphlets on insects, entomology, etc. (Refer to Related Literature.) Brainstorm : Brainstorm to see how much students know about insects by putting an idea web on the board and letting the students give their ideas while you write them down. Have them copy the web into their journals. At the end of the unit, have them complete and contrast what they've learned. Independent Reading : Introduce a time for silent independent reading. Plan periodic 15-20 minute slots for this activity and have a student read a book or article about insects. Give 15 minutes of reading homework and set a date for books to be finished. Have students take notes in their journals to be shared during the culminating activity.

    The primary goal of this Web site is to enable users to identify crickets, katydids, and cicadas from America north of Mexico. The males of most species in these groups make loud, persistent calls that attract sexually ready, conspecific females. Because the songs are loud and species specific they are usually an easy means of identifying the caller. They also facilitate field and laboratory studies of many sorts. Secondary goals are to attract amateur and professional biologists to the study of singing insects and to provide helpful information and access to literature.

    Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the name given to the practice of using a combination of treatment methods to keep pests from ruining a crop. With IPM, the term "treatment" does not always imply the use of a chemical control. Non-chemical pest control strategies include cultural, mechanical, and biology controls as well as good sanitary practices. Most of these controls are used as preventive measures in an attempt to help keep pests below critical levels. However, certain conditions can still allow a pest population to build up to injurious levels. If this should occur, a rescue treatment can be used to reduce the population of the pest and rescue the crop. At the heart of IPM is the understanding that many crops can tolerate a certain amount of pest damage. As a result, a rescue treatment is not needed until the pest population reaches a critical level usually referred to as a threshold. In the home vegetable garden, this threshold may be economic, but is more likely to be aesthetic. A commercial grower' s produce must be blemish free (or nearly so) for fresh market. If a cabbage is found to have holes in the leaves from insect feeding, it will probably be culled or sold at a lower price, making the threshold economic. On the other hand, the threshold for home grown vegetables is often dependent on an individual gardener's tolerance to the damage.

    Information on soil requirements, planting, insects and diseases, weed control, harvesting, and storage.
    Ohio State University Extension Fact Sheet
    Horticulture and Crop Science
    2021 Coffey Rd., Columbus, Ohio 43210-1086
    Growing Asparagus In The Home Garden
    Carl J. Cantaluppi
    Asparagus is a long-lived perennial vegetable crop that is enjoyed by many gardeners. It can be productive for 15 or more years if given proper care.
    Soil requirements
    Asparagus grows in most any soil as long as it has good internal drainage. Asparagus roots do not like waterlogged soils that will lead to root rot. It prefers a soil pH of 6.5-7.5., and will not do well if the pH is less than 6.0. Have the soil tested to determine phosphorus and potassium needs; or add 20 lbs of a 10-20-10 or similar analysis fertilizer per 1,000 square feet, tilled to a 6 inch depth before planting.
    Buy one-year-old, healthy, disease-free crowns from a reputable crown grower. A crown is the root system of a one-year-old asparagus plant that is grown from seed. Each crown can produce 1/2 lb. of spears per year when fully established. A list of crown growers appears at the end of this fact sheet. Asparagus can be planted from seed. However, caring for the small seedlings until they become established can be time consuming. Also, because the seeds are spaced a few inches apart, the crowns will have to be dug and transplanted to their permanent, wider-spaced location in the garden after one year. Thus, one year of potential spear production is lost due to transplanting.
