2012 Approved Methods

The survey methodology presented here lists the most up-to-date, Approved Methods for survey and identification/diagnostics of 2012 CAPS target pests from the Priority Pest List, consisting of 1) Commodity and Taxonomic Survey Pests and 2) Pests of Economic and Environmental Importance. The information in this table supersedes any survey and identification/diagnostic information found in any other CAPS document (Commodity- or Taxon-based Survey References and Guidelines, datasheets, etc.). All other CAPS documents will eventually be revised to include the information contained in this table; however, this table should always be the authoritative source for the most up-to-date, Approved Methods for Pest Surveillance.
