Sweet Corn

Corn Rootworm Beetles

Anonymous added on June 12, 2011 | Answered

My flower gardens are next to a cornfield. Last fall my gardens were ravaged by corn rootworm beetles that came in from the cornfield. Do you have any suggestions for control in case it happens again? I know the best control is crop rotation, but I have no control over the farmer who grows corn year after year.
