Sunflower Insects

Soybean Looper


Limited defoliation of sunflower may caused by this or other looper species.

Rarely is damage severe enough to justify field-wide controls. Insecticides may be warranted if the defoliation reaches 25 percent during bloom and larvae have not begun to pupate.

Please refer to the most recent version of the Sunflower Insect Management Guide for specific control recommendations.
