Catalogue: GRDC Factsheets
The majority of insect species present in these landscapes, especially pests, are good at moving between these habitats and seeking out the resources they need, such as food and shelter for all or part of the year... There is a strong interest in developing integrated pest management (iPm) on a large scale because pests are mobile... Pest suppressive landscapes will have the right mix of habitats that support beneficial insects and allow them to move into crop fields, but discourage the build-up of pests...

European earwigs have emerged as a pest of increasing significance in the past five to ten years as a result of changes in farming practices... Grain harvested at night is more likely to contain earwigs and require cleaning... If the windrows are harvested using crop lifters, there will be significantly more invertebrates, such as earwigs, present in the harvested grain compared with grain harvested using a belt pick-up front...

The main pests of maize are helicoverpa and a number of soil insects... As a guide, control is warranted if out of a count of 30 plants, 27 are infested, and more than 21 have at least 75% flag leaf loss... Many chemicals will control armyworms but their effectiveness is often dependent on good penetration and control may be more difficult in high-yielding thick canopy crops, particularly when larvae are resting under leaf litter at the base of plants...
