The ID Source website will be discontinued as of
December 17, 2013. ID Source's underlying ID Aid data will
still be maintained, however,
and new ways to access ID Aids will be developed. (RSS Feeds are available now.)
ID Source – your gateway to websites that help you identify plant
pests, diseases, and weeds.
ID Source's websites ("ID Aids") are a unique subset of the web, chosen because
they're about identification, then vetted for quality.
ID Source is searchable – you can search for ID Aids on a pest by name,
geographic region, commodity affected, and more.
