A “Summary of Insects on Crops in Manitoba in 2016” is posted on the Manitoba Agriculture insect page at the link http://www.gov.mb.ca/agriculture/crops/insects/pubs/2016-summary.pdf
This report is based partially on observation by myself and my summer assistant. A large part of this information, however, is based on observations and reports from agronomists, farmers, farm production extension specialists, extension coordinators, and others who contributed information over the season. This information was helpful in providing timely updates on where and when insects were of concern throughout the season, and it is a compilation of this data that makes up this summary. Thank you very much to those who contributed information over the growing season.
Note also that the information in the summary is what has been observed personally or reported, and may not be complete in many instances. Although we encourage the reporting of information on insect populations and control to make our weekly updates as complete and useful as possible, some areas of high insect populations and areas where control took place may not have been reported.
I hope this information is useful in your winter planning and preparations for next year
