Oats in Western Pennsylvania
The 1 coital kaf beetle, newest
insect pest in Pennsylvania agn
culturc, seems to be confined
mostly to fields of oats, accord
ing to Dr Arthur A Hower. Jr,
entomologist with the College of
Agucultuie at Pennsylvania
State Univeisity
Crops such as wheat and corn
seem to escape harmful feeding
by this cereal leaf beetle
While the cereal leaf beetle is
found throughout Pennsylvania,
damage to oats was not serious
last year However, beetle pop
ulations causing economic dam
age have been detected this year
in a few oats fields in western
In 1967, adult beetles were col
lected in four western counties
The next year the beetles had
spread to 12 adjacent counties,

Loss of foliage is the major
cause of reduced oats yields.
Studies suggest that one larva
devours 20 per cent of a stem.
One larva pei stem can reduce
oats yield by an average of 3.2
bushels per acie A 1969 survey
in Western Pennsylvania found
that fields in general averaged
1 to 15 laivac foi each stems.

Larval abundance reaches its

As for controls. Dr How er says
foliar sprays are very effective
against the larvae of the cereal
leaf beetle Granular insecticides
have likewise proved successful
in control programs
