MetadataShow full item record
The Hessian fly came from Russia and may have been introduced into the United States during the Revolutionary War. It has since spread to many parts of the country. By 2005, more than 67 counties in Texas reported Hessian fly infestations. This publication details the Hessian fly life cycle, describes the injury it causes to wheat, and explains management strategies for combatting the pest.
