  • Wireworms in the potato patch

    I have loads of potatoes this year, most of them are clean as a whistle. We get them out early so they are ready to harvest by mid to late August.  This early start seems to offset any significant problem with wireworms.
    The tell-tale sign of wireworms: if you do have lots of tiny holes in your potatoes you likely saw the tough little yellow or rust colored worms when you were digging your crop.
    In the past few weeks as folks begin to dig their potatoes, I am hearing the inquiry, “What are the tiny holes in my potatoes and how do I prevent them”?
