Bean Leaf Beetle

Description:

Orange red or green with black head and black spots. Adult beetles lay eggs in soil at the base of seedlings. Larvae feed underground on roots and stems, making stems weak and susceptible to breaking. Adults riddle leaves, especially on early maturing bean plants.

Solutions:

Super-Light Insect Barriers are very effective. Grub-Away® Nematodes, applied at or shortly after planting time, control larvae. Spray kaolin clay as soon as you notice the beetles. Repeat every 7-14 days. We recommend At Home Crop Protectant.
