In this episode of the Canola School, Troy Prosofsky discusses the impact that the flea beetle is having on the Western Canadian canola crop. Troy also talks about the evaluation of flea beetle damage and when or when not to spray to control the pest.
Flea Beetles can be terrible pests and if the damage is over 50% you need to make sure that you spray according to Troy. Due to the cold wet weather the populations have been reduced except for in the Peace River Region this year. Please still keep scouting the fields and ensuring you don’t have an issue.
