Watch out for weevils

In the western part of South Dakota, it’s not typical to have large numbers of alfalfa weevils – but this year may be the exception.

“We’ve been seeing a large number of weevils this year,” said Dusty Jager, SDSU Extension Educator, Fall River County, range management. “Two different producers cutting hay reported that their equipment was just crawling with them.”

What’s worse, Jager found weevils on rangeland north of Newell, SD, while assisting with an Ag Lenders Range Camp in early June. That’s not normal, since weevils lay eggs in alfalfa stems and later feast on plant growth.



Because of the prevalence of alfalfa weevils, Jager provided background information on the pest and control options.
