Mexican Bean Beetle

Description: Bean beetle adults are yellow-brown, 1/4" long, with 16 black spots; they are frequently mistaken for Lady beetles but Lady beetles have a varying number of spots. The larvae are yellow-orange, spined, 1/3" long. Both adults and larvae prefer beans. They skeletonize leaves and can strip a plant to its stems quickly.

Solution: If infestation is already heavy and causing extensive damage, use PyolaTM Insecticidal Spray for highly effective knockdown of adult beetles. Oil-AwayTM Insecticidal Spray kills by suffocating the larvae and eggs. Spray Surround At Home at 1 to 2 week intervals to suppress populations. Maintaining good coverage, especially on new growth, will improve suppression.
