Blister beetles cause problems

-A A +A
By Dennis Morgeson

 

Recently I have had several samples of blister beetles brought into the office. They have been on a rampage in a few tomato patches recently.  Blister beetles are about three quarters of an inch to an inch and a quarter long. They have narrow bodies, broad heads, and antennae that are about one-third the length of the entire body.  There are three types or colors in Kentucky, jet black, striped with orange and black, and margined (which were brought in the office) that are black and have a thin gray stripe around the wing covers.
