  • Spotted cucumber beetle is a major agricultural pest of North America. Another name for the spotted cucumber beetle is southern corn rootworm. Many Diabrotica species cause damage to field crops, especially corn, making these beetles a major agricultural concern. Because of the subterranean nature of their larvae, these insects are hard and expensive to control.
