The last three issues of the ICM newsletter have contained articles on the bean leaf beetle in soybean. The April 29 article reported high winter survival of the beetles; the May 6 article outlined the early-season management of the beetle and bean pod mottle virus; and the May 20 article showed how to distinguish between twelvespotted lady beetle and bean leaf beetle. My article adds to the saga by discussing beetle management to reduce defoliation.
