IN1427/EENY-812by Kaydie McCormick and Adam DaleMay 20, 2024Melanchroia chephise, commonly known as the snowbush spanworm or white-tipped black, is an occasional insect pest of snowbush shrubs and several other ornamental plant species. Found throughout the southern United States, these gregarious moth caterpillars can commonly be found defoliating their chosen hosts soon after they emerge en masse. The colorful appearance of the caterpillars may be alarming, but they pose little risk to people, and usually offer no lasting harm to the plants they feed on. The adult moths, with their black and white wings, can be an attractive addition to a pollinator garden. This publication describes how to identify this insect and provides in-depth information on its biology, development, and management.Critical Issue: 3. Natural Resources and Environmental Quality

thumbnail for publication: Pesticide Mode of Action Classification: Understanding Resistance Action Committees (RACs)

PI299/PI299by Emily C. Kraus and Brett BultemeierMay 9, 2024This publication defines the concept of a pesticide mode of action and provides several examples. It emphasizes the importance of identifying and differentiating modes of action for pesticide resistance management. To this end, it defines the development and goals of the three Resistance Action Committees for insecticides (IRAC), herbicides (HRAC), and fungicides (FRAC) and describes each group’s pesticide mode of action classification scheme. Finally, it provides an example of a pesticide label and instructs applicators on how to rotate pesticides to manage resistance. This publication presents the subject matter in a concise manner and directs pesticide applicators to the very useful RAC Mode of Action group numbers for rotation purposes. Critical Issue: 1.

Visualizing Spatially Based Data for Various Stakeholder Audiences

thumbnail for publication: Visualizing Spatially Based Data for Various Stakeholder Audiences

WC163/AEC499 by Kathryn StoferMay 8, 2024The work of Extension professionals is often to translate complex research findings into practical recommendations. One of the tools used for communicating with Extension audiences is visual representation of data. These visualizations include graphs, charts, and data overlaid onto maps. Just as text and words must be thoughtfully prepared for broad understanding, images should be adapted from the forms used with highly knowledgeable audiences. This article sheet summarizes research in science communication and education that offers strategic ways for communicators to revise data visualizations for broad meaning-making.

Living Shoreline Ecosystem Service Valuation Tool

thumbnail for publication: Living Shoreline Ecosystem Service Valuation Tool

SS729/SL516by Ashley R. Smyth, Laura K. Reynolds, Savanna C. Barry, Natalie C. Stephens, Joshua T. Patterson, and Edward V. CampMay 8, 2024Living shorelines are an increasingly popular way to protect and stabilize waterfronts for coastal property owners. Living shorelines provide valuable benefits to humans, including water quality improvement, habitat, fisheries, and carbon sequestration. Estimating the economic value of the ecosystem services living shorelines offer is an integral part of management decisions. The living shoreline valuation tool can help quantify the costs and benefits of living shorelines projects. This publication briefly describes the ecosystem services associated with living shorelines. The purpose of this publication is to introduce the ecosystem service valuation tool. Our target audience for the living shoreline evaluation tool includes natural resource extension agents, community organizations, and coastal homeowners who want to calculate the value of ecosystem services provided by coastal restoration projects, including living shorelines. Critical Issue: 3.
