Share your BEST PESTS with us

As you can see, the homepage of our website includes a picture that reflects a pest (insect, fungus, virus, bacterium, nematode, weed) and the damage or symptoms observed on the crop. Pictures should be original, taken by you and reflecting important features of the pest that has significance in agricultural production in your region. The images should be accompanied with a short description indicating the pest name, the crop it invades, the location where it was found and the main symptoms it causes.
