Insect Management: Sowbugs (
are crustaceans, more closely related to crayfish than insects. Sowbugs
are commonly encountered in fields with an abundance of decomposing plant
residue from a previous crop. They are oval in shape, appear to be many
segmented, and are up to 0.5 inch long. Sowbugs are pests of seedling
stands and rarely, if ever, cause problems in established stands. In newly
planted fields, sowbugs can destroy seedlings by clipping them off. Control
sowbugs using insecticide bait spread evenly over the field or by using
a broad spectrum insecticide spray.
