  • What Are Sunflower Midges: Signs Of Sunflower Midge Damage
    By Ilana Goldowitz Jimenez - Friday Jun 9, 2017

    By Ilana Goldowitz Jimenez, Plant Scientist & Writer If you grow sunflowers in the Great Plains region of the United States and Canada, you should know about a sunflower pest called the sunflower midge (Contarinia schultzi). This tiny fly is especially a problem in sunflower fields in North and South Dakota, Minnesota, and Manitoba. Infestations may cause a reduction in the yield of seeds from each sunflower head or poor development of the heads overall. What are Sunflower Midges? The adult sunflower midge is just 1/10 inch (2-3 mm.) long, with a tan body and transparent wings. Eggs are yellow to orange and are found in clusters laid in flower buds or sometimes on mature sunflower heads. The larvae are similar in length to the adult, legless, and yellowish-orange or cream colored. The sunflower midge lifecycle begins when the adults lay eggs on the bracts (modified leaves) enclosing the flower
