Question of the Week – Blackbirds

Posted by romeethredge on February 1, 2013

The damage done to the late corn was done by blackbirds. They were bad in spots in the field. they were very bad in late grain sorghum as well this year.

This week’s question is about this insect in a photo sent to me by Andrew Sawyer , UGA Extension Agent in Thomas county. He took this photo in a wheat field. What is this insect and is it good or bad for the wheat?
