Description

Management of alfalfa weevils and clover leaf weevils typically involves an early cutting of the first crop followed by an insecticide treatment of the stubble if needed. This year, numerous incidences of alfalfa weevils and clover leaf weevils suppressing regrowth of alfalfa stubble after first cutting were reported from the southern half of the state. Damaging populations of both species were comprised predominantly of adults but some larvae also were present.
