PRD 01 Principles of Pest Management and Intro to Entomology

  1. Pretarsal pads are 
    an important avenue for
    transferring _ insecticide
    deposits to pest insects 
    as well as a mechanism
    for spreading _ organisms
    • residual
    • disease
  2. The respiratory system 
    of an insect is made up
    of a series of tubes, 
    called _ , which extend 
    into the body.
    These tubes open to 
    the outside of the body
    through openings 
    known as _ .
    • tracheoles
    • spiracles
  3. _ tubules are special 
    excretory tubes that 
    attach to and empty 
    into the hind portion 
    of the digestive tract
    for waste removal.

  4. The most primitive 
    type of mouthparts 
    in insects is the [a] type, 
    and all other types are 
    thought to be 
    modifications thereof.

  5. The [a] are the 
    insects' sense 
    organs having

    and in some cases, [b].
    • antennae

  6. An insect may be 
    identified as such

  7. When conducting an 
    inspection, question 
    the customer about 
    the kind of pests, 
    [a], and [b] or [c].
    • the number of pests
    • pest location
    • pest damage and length of time pests have been present.
  8. Positive and accurate [a] 
    is needed to make a 
    thorough evaluation of 
    the problem and an
    appropriate [b] for control.
    • identification
    • recommendation
  9. In green pest management, 
    if a pesticide is needed, 
    use products or

    reduced _ and 
    reduced _ potential.
    • reduced toxicity
    • reduced exposure potential
  10. Pest prevention using 
    monitoring programs 
    is key to the suppression 
    of pests through the reduction
    of pest access, habitat, and 
    availability of [a] and [b].
    • food
    • water
  11. Because of the challenges 
    associated with the public's concern about pesticides 
    and the environment, 
    it will be necessary

    use more biorational
    and _ specific pesticides,
    use more _ treatments,
    practice more _ pest management

    • non-chemical
    • preventive
  12. What are the 
    primary functions

    • minimum
    • precise
    • need
  14. Best record keeping practices 
    in green pest management 
    include : _ the practices used , keeping records for _ years
    listing only high­ _ insecticides , maintaining _ in an easy ­to­ understand manner
    • documenting
    • two, toxicity
    • records
  15. Which of the following 
    have a significant 
    impact on controlling 
    insect pests?
