Description

In 2002, the bean leaf beetle, Cerotoma trifurcata (Forster), population reached the highest level recorded in 14 years (Fig. 1). The bean leaf beetle is now considered the most frequent insect pest of Iowa soybean, and concern over this pest is greater because it transmits a soybean virus, Bean pod mottle virus (BPMV). Bean leaf beetle management recently has become more complicated because of this insect's association with BPMV, therefore, it is important to understand the life cycle of the beetle and its relation to BPMV before management decisions are made.

Management of Bean Leaf Beetles and Bean Pod Mottle Virus: A Summary of Current and Future Research
