dc.description.abstract Many buyers of processed vegetables are responding to consumer concerns by demanding that producers have an effective environmental stewardship program and reduce pesticide use. Snap bean producers have an opportunity to meet these demands. The snap bean and 12 spot beetle interaction is relatively simple. Methods for determining risk of damage are well established. By monitoring regional beetle populations, scouting fields with a standard sweep net, and applying conservative action thresholds, a grower can reduce insecticide applications without putting the crop at significant risk. en_US
