Guess The Pest! Week 3

David Owens, Extension Entomologist,

Get out your field guides and practice your pest management knowledge by clicking on the GUESS THE PEST logo or following this link: and submitting your best guess. For the 2021 season, we will have an “end of season” raffle for a scouting toolkit for one lucky winner, and five winners will be sent a small jar of locally produced honey. Remember, you can’t win if you don’t play!

When getting eager to see how my snap beans are doing, I dug up these two seeds. The one on the right looks healthy, but the one on the left has a bit more swelling and some gray discoloration. The field was tilled 2 weeks ago, and beans planted 1 week ago. What might be going on?
