Colorado Potato Beetle

Description: Adult beetle has a yellow body with black stripes running downward. Red larva grows to 3/5" long with rows of black spots along its sides. Favorite foods are potato, eggplant, pepper and tomato. Adults and larvae feed on leaves and stems, often stripping entire plants. Small garden plantings seem to be particularly vulnerable to damage.

Solution: Potato Shield (Bt) is highly effective against larvae. For control of adults, spray with PyolaTM Insecticidal Spray or Liquid Rotenone/Pyrethrin. Lady Beetles eat the eggs and Grub-Away Nematodes kill the larvae when they move to the ground to transform into adult beetles.
