It is that time of year again. Colorado potato bugs have arrived.
Since we started checking on Sunday (June 14), we have handpicked maybe 20 adults so far and squished a lot of eggs.

The trick is to keep ahead of them. We started with checking in the evening, and have now moved to morning and evening.

The potatos were put in the ground on 2015 May 19th and the bugs arrived 26 days later. The potatos came up maybe 14 days after planting.
