The University of Illinois' latest updates and educational materials on integrated pest management (IPM) are available as easy-to-use videos on the Internet and on companion compact discs.

"We have developed video segments covering many of the hottest issues in the area of pest management, including the newly discovered soybean aphids, which are viewable from our IPM Web site (ipm.uiuc.edu)," says extension entomologist Susan Ratcliffe. "We also have transferred those videos to compact disc format, and we now have a reasonable, but limited supply of them available for complimentary use."

To request compact discs, e-mail Ratcliffe at sratclif@uiuc.edu.
