We have been working on an insect control guide app for a couple years and are proud to say it is now available in the app store for iPhones. Shortly we will be releasing a version for Android users as well. Also the hard copies of the 2017 Insect Control Guide for Agronomic Crops is now available. Contact your local extension agent if you would like a copy. Additionally you can find the .pdf version under the publication tab at the top of the page on this site.

Instruction for using the app:

In the App Store on your IPhone, search for MSU Insect Control Guide and it should pop up. Download the app.

Under the Recommendation tab at the bottom you be able to enter the crop, pest, and the insecticide. Once you choose this you will see the records loading at the top. Wait until it says Ready to Use then enter the crop/pest/insecticide information you interested in. You will get a performance rating on a scale of 1-10, threshold, use rates, picture of pest, and comments that we may have on that particular pest.
