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.
