  • I have loads of potatoes this year, most of them are clean as a whistle. We get them out early, so they are ready to harvest by mid to late August. This early start seems to offset any significant problem with wireworms. The tell-tale sign of wireworms: If you do have lots of tiny holes in your potatoes you likely saw the tough little yellow or rust-colored worms when you were digging your crop. In the past few weeks as folks begin to dig their potatoes I hear the inquiry, “What are the tiny holes in my potatoes and how do I prevent them?”
