Native plants grown in monoculture for seed production are vulnerable to a variety of insect pests. Adding economics to an IPM formula that does not consider that when these plants grow in a wildland situation can turn a defoliator, stem borer, or seed predator, from an insect that fits into a complex native ecosystem into a seed production problem. This talk will focus on insects that have been seed production problems over the past two decades on the Colorado Plateau and Great Basin.
