These instructional videos are part of the Enhanced Pest Identification and Technology effort as outlined in the Farm Bill—H.R. 6124 Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008. This represents a collaborative effort of eight training/e-learning videos demonstrating techniques for making microscope slides of economically important arthropods (mites, soft scales, mealybugs, armored scales, whiteflies, and aphids [2 different videos]) for scientific study. In addition, a separate video is provided to demonstrate the proper techniques for mailing microscope slides for scientific study.
