Virginia Tech seeks responders for Mexican bean beetle survey

Entomologists at Virginia Tech are asking for specialists, Extension agents and crop consultants to participate in a one-question survey (yes, you read that correctly–one question!) about the Mexican bean beetle.

The survey contains photographs of egg, larval and adult stages of the beetle. The question is, “Based on your experience, how common is Mexican bean beetle in your specific county or city, within the past ten years?” Answers include “Present,” “Never,” or “Unsure.” Responses will help determine the distribution of the Mexican bean beetle.
