Colorado potato beetles

Colorado potato beetles are what Dr. Ian Scott has in mind for a national survey on tolerance levels to selected registered insecticides. He’s a research scientist with the London Research and Development Centre at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC).  


He is looking for approximately 150 “live” beetle adults per sample. If you have a few you can spare, please contact him and he will arrange for someone to come immediately to your farm and take some beetles off your hands. If you are outside of southwest/south central Ontario, a collection kit will be sent that can be returned by overnight courier (pre-paid) to AAFC London, Ontario.


Contact: Dr. Ian Scott at (519) 953-6682 or ian.scott@agr.gc.ca
