On this episode of The Agronomists we’ve brought in two guests who know all there is to know about the pesky pests that seem to inevitably find their way into your crops. We are talking about the infamous wireworm, flea beetles that can wreak havoc on canola crops, and cutworms that, let’s face it, are hard to find and even get rid of as their behaviour can vary greatly depending on the species.

The Agronomists host, Lyndsey Smith, is joined by John Gavloski, a long-time extension entomologist with Manitoba Agriculture, and Scott Meers, an insect management specialist and an agrologist at Mayland Consulting. Together they will be breaking down the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to these pests and specifically, what you need to know about them when it comes to spring and early crops – with a positive reminder thrown in the mix as well.

Keeping in mind that you don’t always need to look specifically for the insect causing the problems, but that finding the damage done is reason enough to take action, the trio will dissect what it is you should be looking for, when to look for it, and what you can do about it to help save your crop from these destructive insects.
