Colorado Potato Beetles Wanted

Dr. Ian Scott, a research scientist with the London Research and Development Centre at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, is conducting a survey of Colorado potato beetle susceptibility levels to registered insecticides (neonicotinoids, diamides and spinosyns).

What does he need? He is looking for approximately 150 beetle adults (a minimum of 75 adults or large larvae are acceptable) per sample. If you have a few you can spare, please contact Dr. Scott and he will arrange for someone to come out right away and take some beetles off your hands. If you are outside of southwest/south central Ontario, he will send you a collection kit.

Contact Dr. Ian Scott at 519-953-6682 or
