Wireworms, the larval stage of click on beetles (Coleoptera: Elateridae), are generalist subterranean herbivores that trigger important harm in quite a lot of crops. Managing wireworms has been a problem as a consequence of their long-life cycle, subterranean residing habitat, and skill to outlive wide selection of host crops. Though there are a number of pesticides obtainable for typical farming, there isn’t any efficient different management measure towards wireworms in natural manufacturing. Thus, there’s a important want for creating efficient non-chemical management protocols towards wireworms.
