PSYLLID UPDATE: WAITING ON LSO TESTING
More potato psyllids were trapped last week in potato fields in Ada, Canyon, Elmore and Twin Falls counties. The number of psyllids collected per trap and per field remains relatively low; however, they are in line with trap counts from this time last year. It remains to be seen whether a similar increase will be observed this year, but last year’s sticky trap captures increased dramatically through August and September.
We are still waiting on results from Lso testing from psyllids collected during this and last week. Detailed monitoring results and management recommendations can always be found at the link provided below:
