Check for Dectes Stem Borer Damage in Soybeans
Robert Wright - Extension Entomologist | Justin McMechan - Crop Protection and Cropping Systems Specialist | Kyle Broderick - Coordinator of the UNL Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic
We have received several reports of stem breakage caused by Dectes stem borer in eastern Nebraska. In some cases, these fields were not previously known to be infested with Dectes beetles.
Dectes has been expanding its range in Nebraska soybeans. Most commonly it has been found damaging soybeans in south central Nebraska, but it has been expanding to the east, west, and north.
