Abstract

Insect damage that occurs below the soil surface is difficult to predict. It is equally difficult to evaluate the need for an insecticide treatment with seed-attacking insects. Wireworms, seedcorn beetles, slender seedcorn beetles, and seedcorn maggots are minor soil-inhabiting pests that occasionally cause stand loss by feeding on germinating seeds or young shoots and roots prior to emergence.
