Alert: Pests Spotted in Tennessee
Tennessee – According to entomologist Dr. Scott Stewart, in cotton there have been sightings of:
- Cotton aphids
- Tarnished plant bugs
While cotton aphids are not quite at threatening levels, there are other factors to consider. These pests have begun to develop resistance to neonicotinoid insecticides.
Tarnished plant bug populations are increasing. To hear more about the pests and management solutions, listen to Dr. Stewart’s Pest Patrol update.
For fields that have reached plant bug threshold levels, consider Syngenta insecticides like Centric®.
