Tarnished Plant Bugs Found

A significant level of adult tarnished plant bugs was found this morning (June 4th) in nine true leaf cotton in Autauga County Alabama. Levels of up to five adults per 100 plants were reported. No pin head square loss was observed but it is likely just a matter of time until damage is observed. Controls are planned.

In addition to these tarnished plant bugs, eggs, most likely tobacco budworms, were also reported.
