Clb questions

CLB Questions

  • What is the economic impact on small grain production in the various ID production areas?

  • What are appropriate economic thresholds for our market classes of grain?

  • What is the impact of native generalist predators and T. julis on CLB population levels (egg predation by coccinellids)?

  • Why did we experience lower CLB population levels in SW Idaho in 2006?

Next season 2006

Next Season - 2006

  • Continue CLB egg survey for overwintering A. flavipes

  • Renew effort to release and establish population of A. flavipes

  • Use the U of I Parma fields as T.julis insectary.

  • CLB biocontrol project funding uncertain?
