Adam Varenhorst, Assistant Professor & SDSU Extension Field Crop Entomologist said the SDSU Extension team has been receiving reports of the bumble flower beetle. "They show up later in the season and feed on ripe garden produce," Varenhorst explained. Although the bumble flower beetle and June beetle are related, Varenhorst said there are quite a few characteristics that can be used to tell them apart. "One of the biggest differences is the timing of their arrival," he said. "June beetles are most frequently observed from May to June, while the bumble flower beetle appears from late July until the first hard frost." Another distinguishing characteristic of the bumble flower beetle is its light to dark brown body color with black and light mottling patterns (Figure 1). Bumble flower beetles are also mostly covered in dense, light-colored hairs, and make a very noticeable buzzing sound while flying (Figure 2). Not a pest to worry about Although these beetles often get blamed for damage to tomatoes and apples, Varenhorst says the criticism isn't fair because they are only feeding on produce that was already damaged. "The bumble flower beetles are attracted to sweet or fermenting liquids and ripening crops," he said. "Bumble flower beetles are not considered a major pest, and the best way to manage them is to remove them from infested areas and destroy them." In addition, routine picking and removing of damaged produce from the garden can reduce the presence of bumble flower beetles. For apple trees, Varenhorst encouraged the removal of any blemished apples and ground falls from around the base of the tree. "Doing so should noticeably reduce bumble flower beetle numbers," he said.

Duke, Vermillion, SD 605-677-7073 Election Signs Not Allowed In Right Of Way PIERRE, S.D –The South Dakota Department of Transportation reminds the public that political campaign and ballot-issue signs cannot be placed on state highway rights of way. “With election season upon us, election signs are showing up along the state’s roadways,” says Kristi Sandal, public information officer. “Illegal signs create a safety hazard and may distract motorists from seeing important regulatory or directional signing.” The use of right of way is reserved for official highway signage. All signs in the right of way that are not required for traffic control, as authorized by law (SDCL 31-28-14), are prohibited and will be removed by SDDOT crews as they see them or as they are reported. Attempts to contact the owner of the signs to pick them up will be made. Municipal ordinances regulating placement and removal of campaign signs within towns and cities do not have precedence over state jurisdiction and supervision of state highway rights of way within municipalities.
