Potato Insect Control

Potato Insect Control

Insect pests such as Colorado potato beetles, aphids, potato psyllids, and wireworms can cause significant damage to potatoes. Information on identifying and managing these pests can be found here.

Monitoring psyllid populations is an important component of managing Zebra chip.  Growers and consultants can deploy yellow sticky cards to help estimate if and when adult psyllids may be migrating into potato fields.  Guidelines for placing cards and some sources for purchasing cards are provided here.
