Early beetle harvest

If you want to collect flea beetles to control leafy spurge, you’ll need to start earlier than usual this year.

Collection — which needs to occur before the insects begin laying their eggs — should start roughly two weeks earlier this year because of the mild winter and early spring, officials say.
