In a 24-h period, lygus bugs (Lygus spp.) caged 1/plant can kill 72% and injure 18% of the sugarbeet plants in the cotyledon stage and can kill 17% and injure 66% of plants in the 2-leaf stage. No seedling plants in the 4-leaf stage were killed and injury was minimal. Thus, control measures against Lygus should be initiated when the beets are in the cotyledon and 2 leaf stages. It is estimated that one Lygus adult can kill an avg 0.85 seedling plants/day. The number of seedlings that will be damaged on successive days thus can be estimated if one knows the number of Lygus.
