Worms to the South.

Worms to the South.

It has been brought to my attention that fall and beet army worms in winter wheat as well as the Diamond Back larvae in winter canola are prevalent in southern Oklahoma. I have not seen any of these pest in our area yet and with the recent “blessed” rain the acuteness of this threat may have lessened for now. Just wanted to raise awareness with this message.
Signs of the presence of these worms are “window paning” of the leaves, or the young newly emerged plant(s) being chopped at the ground.
The beet army worm does not respond to pyrethroids, so look to spend a little more on control than in previous years. BUT still worth controlling, IF we get them.
