Time to Scout for Western Corn Rootworm Beetles
Western corn rootworm beetles began emerging in southeast and south central Nebraska. Beetles typically emerge somewhat later in northeastern and western Nebraska. Usually an average of 5-10 beetles per ear is required to seriously affect pollination. Severe silk feeding at 25%-50% pollen shed may indicate a need to apply insecticide.
