Alert: Pests Spotted in Georgia

Georgia – According to entomologist Dr. Phillip Roberts, in cotton and soybeans there have been sightings of:

  • Aphids
  • Plant bugs
  • Kudzu bugs

Aphid hot spots are building in fields, and will soon start to spread. Treat based on personal judgement, but be aware that heavy aphid populations have begun settling on seedling cotton, which can cause growth delays.

To hear more about the pests and management solutions, listen to Dr. Roberts’ Pest Patrol update.

For fields that have reached threshold levels, consider Syngenta insecticides like Endigo® ZC and Besiege®.
