kudzu beetles on pole beans

karyl7bFebruary 26, 2012

I was planning on growing pole beans in my vegetable garden this year but it seems I have kudzu beetles. Does anyone have experience with these bugs around beans and can tell me if they are worth planting or if they will just get wiped out?

They did not wipe out my yard long beans, other cowpeas and limas this year. They were not present early in the garden to bother the very early bush beans I planted.

thank you. I'm going to try them. I have kudzu beetles now and no kudzu nearby so no idea what they eating. This will be my first year with vegetables so I'm sure I'll be learning a lot!

Yes, the kudzu bugs have hurt soybean farmers, but the UGA extension is working hard on farmers behalf to find a solution!
