With This Heat, Spidermites Could Be a Problem

With this kind of heat AND wheat harvest just around the corner, we should keep an eye out for spidermite activity in both seed corn and soybeans.

I put together a pretty detailed article last year in the CropPest Ontario Newsletter.  Visit it to familiarize yourself with what signs to look for.  It is very important to stay ahead of spidermite infestations and control them prior to wind carrying them further into the field, resulting in the entire field needing to be sprayed.

And with Diagnostic Days this week, blogs may be brief and few but I will try my best to keep you informed of any relevant pest issues that pop up.

Try to stay cool and hydrated this week.
