GOOD NEWS: Insects collected in pea leaf weevil traps were submitted for identification and experts say that they are likely not pea leaf weevil, but a combination of native Sitona (large genus of weevils) species and sweet clover weevil.  NPARA will continue to work with the University of Alberta and monitor pea fields in the county next growing season.
