Thc lesser clover leaf weevil, Hypera nigrirostris (F.), was shown to have little effect on red clover seed yields in Idaho. The clover root borer, Hylastinus obcurus (Marsham) , and the clover root curculio, Sitona hispidula (F.) , lowered both the longevity and seed yields of red clover fields. A high population of these beetles usually resulted in un thrifty stands and in a lowering of expected yields. Populations of these 2 root-damaging species were rather closely correlated with the number of roots expressing disease symptoms. In the first seed crop year, spring-planted red clover fields generally had higher populations of all 3 beetles than fall-planted fields. Granular forms of heptachlor and dieldrin were used to manipulate the insect populations in this study.
