Bean leaf beetles have been at or near historically high populations during each of the last two summers. This has resulted in more plant damage, transmission of the bean pod mottle virus, and reduced yields. Winter survival of this insect pest may be important management information to consider because the number of insects surviving the winter is closely related to problems in soybeans.
