Using the Pest Management PDFs on a Mobile Device
This is a 6 min (175 mb) video produced by Frank Watson, Wilkes County CEC, on how to use the bookmarks feature of the Adobe Acrobat Reader app in order to easily access pest management information.

Once you arrive at the page, you will have the option to log into Dropbox if you desire, but that is not necessary. Just “X” out that box and then click to stream the video. You can also use the download link at the top of the page to download file to your computer.

Note: PDFs are also searchable. Using the video as a reference, instead of tapping on the book icon on the bottom left to access the bookmarks, the magnifying glass icon will bring up a text box that will let you search by keyword. Then it will find the word and highlight its location in the document. You can use the arrows to scroll to other instances of the where the word is used in the document. This could be useful if you are looking for a specific chemical or disease; just be sure spelling is correct. You may also only want to search for part of the word, such as “blue” in order to capture both blueberries and blueberry.
