Controlling Colorado Potato Beetles


Moffat, C., I. Scott, S. Hann. 2021. Controlling Colorado Potato Beetles. SpudSmart Innovation Webinar Series, November 30, 2021.


Colorado potato beetles (CPBs) are highly adaptive to new control methods, which makes them hard to get rid of in potato fields. A national research project led by AAFC and funded by the Canadian Horticulture Cluster has been working to quantify regional patterns of insecticide resistance and develop regional control methods. This webinar will take a closer look at their research findings which could help control CPBs on your potato crops.
