Description

Sampling adult com rootworms is a proven method of gathering information about the insect population to assist com growers in managing this pest. Specifically, if the adult population reaches a prescribed density, a com grower should consider rotating to a crop other than com or apply a rootworm insecticide if planting com the following spring. Conversely, if the adult population fails to reach this density, a com grower can forego a control option without expecting to suffer economic yield losses.
