Fact Sheets

The fact sheet section provides details on common insect pests found in household and pantry settings, vegetable plants and fruit trees, ornamental plants, Christmas trees, and field crops.

Insect pests are listed by common name.  Most of the insect names link directly to the Virginia Cooperative Extension insect fact sheets.  These sheets provide more comprehensive descriptions about insect appearance, habitat, life cycle, types of damage, and control.  You can also print out a PDF version of the fact sheet by selecting the top link on the right-hand side of the fact sheet webpage.
