The potato bug or the Colorado potato beetle is native to North America, primarily in the western regions around the Rocky Mountains. They are “oval in shape, range in size from 6 to 11 mm and have 6 tan-coloured legs. Their shell, or hard elytra, is muted orange-yellow shade and usually shows 10 distinct vertical black stripes. The head is tan and also shows black markings.” The potato bug is not only a destructive pest to potatoes, they also infest other crops such as tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and tobacco. Potato bugs are very difficult to deal with as they are resistant to sprays and repellents.
