identify an insect

The accurate identification of insects (and other invertebrates) present within crops is critical for effective pest management. cesar offers an Insect Identification Service so you can eliminate the guess work. We have also developed an extensive Insect Gallery, featuring high quality images of pest and beneficial insects commonly present in Australian broad-acre crops and pastures.

The value of accurate insect identification

Misidentification of insects can lead to costly mistakes and time wasted. Many pests look similar, occur in the same areas and cause similar damage, but require very different control tactics. Further, the species you find may be beneficial or of no consequence at all. With the support of cesar many growers, agronomists and farm advisers are getting better pest management outcomes.
