I grow about an acre of taters a year and have problem with tater beetles. hand picking, lady bug beetles are out of the question.


what or how do the large acreage potato farmers control the Colorado potato beetle.

i've used seven, malathion, diazinon with limited results.... they still eat up the vines.


any ides.

We have used spinosads and heavy organo phospates. That stuff your using will not work. Talk to a chemical field salman from your fertilizer and chemical company.

Bayer Admire Pro, on the seed pieces. There are generics too, about 1/4 the cost.

We grow potatoes in the garden and alfalfa hay, so, we get leafhoppers plus potato beetles. I spray for
leafhoppers and hand pick potato bugs. There are days I will walk the rows 4x per day, and constantly
find bugs. If I scout for egg sacs early and destroy them I get ahead. After hatching, they can really take
off.
