Abstract

Spotted and striped cucumber beetles vector a bacterium that causes wilt in cucurbits. These beetles are the major pest of muskmelons in Iowa. We investigated the success of spun-cotton Reemay row covers and several reduced-risk insecticides for management of cucumber beetles and bacterial wilt.
