Soybeans typically harbor an incredible diversity of insects that feed on the plants from the time they start to crack the soil until the last leaf has dropped in the late summer. And somewhere between these two extremes, insect and spider mite populations occasionally build up to economically damaging populations. When this happens, often the most effective pest management tactic for most growers and crop managers is to apply a foliar insecticide to reduce the population.
