Guess the Pest! Week 1

David Owens, Extension Entomologist,

Guess the Pest is back for 2019! Test your pest management knowledge by clicking on the GUESS THE PEST logo and submitting your best guess. For the 2019 season, we will have an “end of season” raffle for a $100 gift card. Each week, one lucky winner will also be selected for a prize and have their name entered not once but five times into the end of season raffle.

This year, weekly winners will win a heavy duty sweep net, a valuable tool in the field, for building insect collections, and avoiding awkward confrontations, because no one messes with someone using a sweep net.

What is this early spring insect?
