Alert: Pests Spotted in Arkansas
Arkansas – According to entomologist Dr. Gus Lorenz, in rice, cotton, soybeans and corn there have been sightings of:
- Rice water weevil
- Fall armyworms
- Plant bugs
- Stink bugs
- Grape Colaspis
- Bean leaf beetle
As grape colaspis continues to cause high damage in soybeans, bean leaf beetles are beginning to add additional pressure. With the threat of large rice water weevil populations, getting ahead of the problem is crucial. To hear more about the pests and management solutions, listen to Dr. Lorenz’s Pest Patrol update.
For fields that have reached threshold levels, consider Syngenta insecticides like Centric® and Endigo® ZC.
