Black/Red Beetle on corn stalk. What is it?
Hi. I found a small black beetle with horizontal red stripes on one of my corn stalks this morning (got away before I could catch him). I searched online and I THINK its a black and red blister beetle.
Any thoughts? And should I wig out and pull out the pesticide?
Seriously, just trying to keep an eye on things, be proactive. Any help much appreciated as always!!! I should add I noticed 2 weeks ago that something was chomping away on the leaves of the corn but that seems to have stopped.
