Reader Survey for INSECT ALERTS.
Miller, Mason E.; Sauer, Richard J.
To determine what might be done to improve "Insect Alerts," which is a newsletter that carries "information on insect biology, abundance, activity and interpretation of control need," put out through the Michigan Cooperative Extension Service 26 weeks a year, a survey was conducted. A mail questionnaire was sent to all 120 county extension directors and agricultural agents, and 175 were sent out to members of the Michigan Pesticide Association. In all, 200 of the 295 mailed out were returned. The questions concerned use of the information contained in the newsletter, opinion of the publication, changing to a monthly publication schedule, and distribution pattern. It was concluded from the survey that the publication is very favorably received; readers would like additional information on insect-related topics included; and there appeared to be a place for monthly publication. A copy of the survey instrument is provided. (DB)
