Abstract

The bean leaf beetle is an annual pest of soybean in Midwestern states. Adult beetles feed on all aboveground plant parts and are especially fond of soybean pods late in the growing season. In addition to the physical injury that bean leaf beetle adults cause to soybean plants, this insect also transmits bean pod mottle virus - a potentially yield-robbing plant disease - which makes proper management of this insect even more critical. This report focuses on managing second-generation beetles with insecticides to control late-season pod injury.
