Western Corn Rootworms

–by Dr. Jeff Whitworth

Western corn rootworm larval feeding seems to be almost finished around the north central part of Kansas, anyway. Root monitoring yielded mostly mature larvae– but also one that had just recently pupated (see fig 2). No western corn rootworm adults have been observed yet.
