Pest Update

Sorghum headworm and stink bugs are under reasonable control after many fields were sprayed the last two weeks. Most sorghum is well into the hard dough stage and should be safe from economic damage from head pests.

Sugarcane aphids are on the rise in most fields as beneficials were knocked back by the pyrethroid sprays. Some beneficial activity is back this week, mostly syrphid flies, Scymnus ladybugs, and green lacewings. Fields that were not treated have very high numbers of natural enemies that are working hard on the SCA.
