Treatments depend on which species are found
Flea beetles are feeding on canola crops in some regions of the Prairies this spring, and growers are being advised to scout for the pests.
Whether they take action will depend on number, level of damage and crop stage, but the type of flea beetle involved is also important.
Crucifer flea beetles, which are solid black in colour, are the most common and can be managed with neonicotinoids.
