The Colorado potato beetle Leptinotarsa decemlineata, also known as the Colorado beetle, the ten-striped spearman, the ten-lined potato beetle, or the potato bug, is a major pest of potato crops. It is about 10 mm in long, with a bright yelloworange body and five bold brown stripes along the length of each of its elytra. Native to America, it spread rapidly in potato crops across America and then Europe from 1859 onwards. КОЛОРАДСКИЙ ЖУК и борьба с ним. Мой опыт.

Colorado beetles had already been common in Germany before the war, says Erhard Geissler, an expert in biological warfare at the Max Delbruck Centre for Molecular Medicine, who has researched the history of the pests. Potato beetles. Colorado potato beetles are not established in the UK where they are a quarantine pest. And in 1950, there were indeed many more of them in the fields. But, there were plenty of other reasons why that might have been the case, says Geissler. Potatoes were the main thing we had to eat in East Germany at the time, remembers Geissler, who grew up in Leipzig. Colorado beetles will reproduce and crawl faster and faster in which level.

They can also attack other plants in the night shade family Solanaceae, including: Eggplant. When Colorado potato beetles first emerge in the spring, they will look for other hosts in the absence of potato plants. Clean up weeds like nightshade and ground cherry near your garden, as these weeds can act as a possible food source. Plant early maturing varieties. We lost the Colorado Potato Beetle Battle But still managed to harvest some potatoes after the nasty bugs ate a 100 ft row of plants in a couple of weeks. Next year, we are going under cover. Last Winter, I purchased two kinds of seed potatoes 5lb Kennebec, and 77YUK Yukon Gold from the Potato Garden. This website is such a great place to buy potato seeds.

The Colorado potato beetle is the gardeners worst nightmare, as it voraciously gobbles up the leaves of potato, tomato, and aubergines plants 25,000 species of this beetle exist. These insects belong to the leaf beetle family and can be recognized by the presence of 10 yellow and 10 black stripes on their curved backs. When the garden is invaded by these beetles, both the larvae and the adults must be destroyed. The insecticides used must be constantly changed, as scientists suspect that this insect is capable of developing a resistance to chemical products. Adult Colorado potato beetles are approximately 38-12 long with rounded bodies and yellow and black striping on their wing covers. The larvae are approximately 18-12 in length and have a reddish coloring with two rows of black dots on each side of its body. Reproduction Patterns of Colorado Potato Beetles. In the spring, the adult Colorado potato beetle emerges from the soil where it overwintered. When the settlers brought potatoes into the habitat regions of this beetle, and the beetle realized what a delicacy potatoes were, it no longer fed on its regular host plants, preferring the potato instead. They have also become partial to tomatoes, eggplants, peppers and tobacco
