What Parts of Plants Do Insects Destroy?
Pests can damage any part of the plant. First, some insects stick to a section of the plant, such as the leaves, stalks, or roots. Besides those insects, others damage more than one part of the plant. For instance, the bean leaf beetle chews holes in leaves, feed on pods, and their larvae feed on the roots below the surface. But before you can end the problem, you need to look at what kind of damage the insects caused and on what part of the plant. This information helps you with the first task in pest control, identifying the pest.
