Peanut producers expect to battle insect problems on a yearly basis. It is impossible to know from year to year which insect species will cause serious problems or which ones will be a minor nuisance. In 2010, the burrower bug caused significant economic damage in isolated areas of the Southeastern U.S. This presentation will discuss the development of the burrower bug on peanut and some of the production practices that may put a producer at greater risk of having significant damage from this pest problem.
