Garden Pest Control: The Only Way To Kill Corn Rootworm Pests

By Maria Rivera

In the areas to our north, there is a biotype or version of the western corn rootworm. Because of this variant, a big portion of the adult population leaves the corn fields to feed on the soybean leaves and to a lesser extent some other crops. They put their eggs in the dirt at the base of the soybean plants as well. The consequence is that when this soybean field is selected and planted to corn the next year, there might be a danger of western corn rootworm problem in the 1st year corn. Thankfully, we certainly have not had any studies of this variant in Kentucky. Even while the variant has propagated somewhat to the east and northeast from the zones it was first reported, activity southward continues to be time-consuming. If ever the soybean variant were to arrive at Kentucky, it would drastically affect the administration of corn rootworms.

These type have a very narrow host range, feasting on corn and some other grass species. The eggs overwinter are to hatch this May. The small larvae can simply move a very quick range in the soil to find roots and start off their development. Because of this, in Kentucky the western and northern corn rootworms are only difficult in steady corn. The southern corn rootworm overwinters as an adult and will lay its offspring in the early spring. The southern corn rootworm has an exceptionally wide host collection and will lay down its eggs around the bases on lots of plant species, it commonly doesn’t completely focus on just corn.

That which is common with all the corn rootworms in Kentucky usually their offspring hatch in late spring and the larvae are harmful to corn roots. Usually the the vast majority of harm transpires throughout the month of June. Just what can be different among the species is anytime the eggs are laid. With the west and north species the eggs are put in the dirt at the base of corn plants throughout the previous summer.

That is why, in Kentucky the western and northern corn rootworms are only challenging in steady corn. The southern corn rootworm overwinters as a mature and will place its offspring in the planting season. The southern corn rootworm has quite a wide host range and will lay down its eggs all around the bases on a lot of plant types, it usually does not focus on just corn.

The problems achieved by the larvae to corn roots is often widespread. Corn plants develop roots on gradual rings, the corn rootworm larvae can damage about three or more complete rings of roots during June if populations are serious. Corn plants that were greatly affected by corn rootworm larvae frequently fall over moderately and may try to bend upward. This is typical of rootworm damage and is named ‘goose-necking’ of corn. Weakened roots will typically develop a proliferation of secondary roots and may demonstrate signals of drought strain also through periods of adequate soil seepage. The damage accomplished by the larvae to corn roots can be extensive. Corn plants develop roots on revolutionary rings, the corn rootworm larvae can destroy about three or more full rings of roots during June if populations are severe.
