Abstract:Feeding damage by Lygus elisus Van Duzee to seedlings of onions, radishes, turnips, rape, clovers, alfalfa, lentils, peas, beans, dill, and carrots ranged from slight damage with full recovery to relatively heavy damage and seedling mortality. Crucifer and umbellifer seedlings were damaged heavily, whereas damage to legume seedlings was light or quickly outgrown.
