Compendium of Bedding Plant Diseases and Pests is the most up-to-date and thorough book available regarding diseases, disorders, and arthropod pests of bedding plants. It provides a comprehensive, authoritative resource for a broad range of readers—from diagnosticians, extension plant pathologists, horticulturists, and students to greenhouse. Some forms produce honeydew, a sticky secretion that draws ants or fungal diseases to the plant. Some varieties of male scale insects have wings, but they aren’t strong fliers. Instead, the wings are used to help guide the male if it’s caught and pulled from its plant in the wind.

Identifying the problem is the first step in finding an earth-friendly way to reduce — or even eliminate — the damage. Earwigs shred foliage and leaf miners leave their characteristic trails under the foliage. Most of these pests can be handled with an insecticidal soap spray or blasts of water to remove the insects. In the case of the leaf miner, remove any affected leaves to eliminate the bugs.
Plant Pest & Disease Management Pests affecting plants, like soil-borne diseases, insects and fungi, are a central focus of Georgia's pest management efforts. Commercial producers contend with the thrips, aphids, moths and other bugs that indiscriminately prey on their crops, while conditions like mycotoxin in corn and tomato spotted wilt virus. Prune your plants, so that the insides are open and will not accumulate moisture. (And disinfect your pruning shears or flower-cutting knives whenever you use them!) Pick up dead flowers and leaves, since they can harbor fungi. Water your plants at the bottom, so the tops will not get wet. Control insects, since they spread many of these diseases.

or in the world, and the Southwest has its share of pests and diseases. Many folks have no idea why a plant looks magnificent one day then almost withers away a few days later.
This handbook is intended as a ready reference guide to the control and management tactics for the more important plant diseases in the Pacific Northwest. This book should be used by—and has been expressly written for—county Extension agents, consultants, field and nursery people, and chemical industry representatives.
Author: Nicholas J. Brazee, UMass Extension Plant Pathologist Most of the disease pathogens known to be pests of woody ornamentals in the Northeast region are covered in this guide.
Included is host plant information, along with appropriate fungicides, bactericides, biological control materials, and also cultural management information where applicable. periodic insecticide treatments will be carried out to control insect pests; cultivation of resistant varieties; Mycoplasmosis: Stubble of pepper (Stolbur disease in pepper).
The disease is common to all plants in the Solanaceae family (tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplants) and it. Insects and mites can cause plant diseases or transport and inoculate viruses and microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi that cause plant disease.
This chapter focuses on the plant dieases caused by insects. Insects are the most important vectors of plant viruses and the main or sole means of spread of many plant by: 2. List of Common Plant Diseases. As you have seen, there are 5 biological agents that cause plant diseases. The following list contains names of plant diseases that commonly trouble gardeners as well as farmers alike.
List of Plant Diseases Caused by Fungi. Fungi are known to cause extensive damage to the plants, especially the crops. Additional information on each of these pest threats is included in the fact sheets in the Biosecurity Manual for the Nursery and Garden Industry.
For a complete list of exotic pest threats for the nursery production industry, refer to or the Industry Biosecurity Plan for the Nursery Industry, available from Nursery and Garden Industry Australia.
Impatiens necrotic spot virus, known as INSV, is one of the more severe diseases affecting nursery crops. Chrysanthemums, begonias, exacum, impatiens, vincas and gloxinias are some of the plants most at risk. The disease is mostly carried by tiny insects called thrips.
INSV has various symptoms such as black ring spots which afflict impatiens. 0 Plant areas with at least 6 hours full sun 0 Plant in well-drained soil 0 Avoid water splashing (sprinklers) – water from the bottom, use soaker hoses 0 Host resistance is reportedly available 0 Purchase plants that look healthy (disease-free) 0 At normal pruning time, remove and destroy diseased terminals of woody plants (lilacs, roses).
Insects can become pests in the garden when they cause damage to garden plants. The signs of damage vary, typically depending on the way that the insect feeds on the plant.
Some insects have chewing mouthparts, leaving tears and holes; others have piercing-sucking mouthparts, often causing wilting, yellowing, or browning on plants.
The most important tool in managing pests and diseases in your orchard is regular scouting. At least weekly, closely examine the trunks and branches, flowers, leaves, and fruit for signs of pests or diseases.
If you are not sure what a problem is or how to control it, get help from your county extension office, nursery or garden center. Remove and destroy all plant materials including weeds Pressure-wash, disinfect Increase temperature to >80ºF Constant light Eliminate standing water & algae (food, shelter) Sterilize soil/growth media Place sticky traps to monitor pests before moving in new plants.
Common Pests: The most common pests of foliage and flowering plants are spider mites, mealy bugs, fungus gnats, whitefly and aphids. The use of plant material for outdoor as well as indoor decoration exposes them to all manner of garden pests, such as caterpillars, slugs, snails and thrips, many of which thrive once the plants are moved back indoors.
this guide summarizes insect, mite, and disease management practices and pesticide safety information for woody ornamentals and shade trees in Pennsylv ania. its use is intended primarily for arborists, nursery growers, landscape maintenance personnel, extension educators, and consultants.

Gray leaf spot: Gray Leaf Spot on tomato leaf is the sign of gray leaf spot disease, the development of small, dark-colored lesions on the leaves. These diseases will reduce productivity and eventual leaf drop.
Pruning and training of fruit trees and proper disposal of infested leaves, branches and twigs will help control scale insects on nursery plants and trees. Excessive use of plant fertilizers contributes to scale outbreaks. Various insecticides are registered for control of armored scales in ornamental and fruit crops.
