About this product
- DescriptionThe abundance of insects can change dramatically from generation to generation; these generational changes may occur within a growing season or over a period of years. Such extraordinary density changes or outbreaks may be abrupt and ostensibly random, or population peaks may occur in a more or less cyclic fashion.
