2012 Approved Methods

The survey methodology presented in this Appendix lists the most up-to-date, CAPS-approved methods for survey and identification/diagnostics of 2012 CAPS target pests from the Priority Pest List, consisting of pests from the 1) commodity- and taxonomic-based surveys and 2) AHP Prioritized Pest List. The information in this table supersedes any survey and identification/diagnostic information found in any other CAPS document (i.e., Commodity-based Survey References and Guidelines, EWB/BB National Survey Manual, etc.). All other CAPS documents eventually will 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, CAPS-approved methods.
