Protect Vegetable Crops from Chewing Pests

This agronomic image shows pepper crops.

With a wide variety of insects in Arizona and California, vegetable crops are constantly susceptible to attack. With yield and crop-quality in danger, make a pest management plan to protect fields.

When addressing pests, it’s important to recognize what you’re up against. Some common insects found in vegetables include:

  • Blister beetles
  • Corn earworm
  • Grasshoppers
  • Tomato hornworms
  • Thrips

Combatting these lepidopteran and chewing insects can be difficult. When faced with these bugs, we recommend Besiege® insecticide. With two modes of action, Beisege is a broad-spectrum foliar insecticide that provides fast knockdown and long-lasting residual control of a wide range of pests.
