THEY’RE BACK, AND THEY’RE HUNGRY

Swarms of Japanese beetles in western and central Illinois are doing a number on corn and soybean crops, leaving farmers to wonder if the cost of damage caused by the pests could outweigh the cost of spraying. “There’s some damage, we know,” said Tazewell County Farm Bureau Manager Doug Godke. “The soy plants are being hit. Some farmers are treating with pesticides, but we’re not too sure yet on the severity of crop damage.” (Peoria Journal Star)
