  • 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.

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?”
