  Monitoring of Insect Populations in Potato Fields in 2002

Guy Bernard1

Abstract: Potato Flea Beetle damage in potato fields was generally very low during the 2002 growing season. Aphid populations were also very low. No Green Peach aphids were found feeding on potato plants in our monitored fields. Colorado Potato Beetle populations were low during the 2002 season; although a small percentage of the fields monitored largely exceeded the economic threshold level.
