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
