It is not clear if these pests will continue to build or even move into more canola growing areas of the state; however, growers need to make sure to start scouting fields to not let these pests build this early during the green-up and spring develop.  As always, if you are mixing insecticides and herbicides/fertilizers when making these application, check the labels for detailed mixing restrictions and instructions.
