Management of Insect and Mite Pests in Canola

There are several arthropod pests that damage canola sporadically throughout the region. Pesticides should not be a substitute for good agronomic practices or as “preventative insurance” because it can cause pest resurgence issues and is rarely economically or environmentally justifiable. Many canola pest problems can be managed by following good cultural practices, such as selecting varieties that are adapted to Oklahoma growing conditions, planting at an optimal date and providing proper fertilization and good weed control.


The information herein is for educational purposes only. Reference to commercial products or trade names is made with the understanding that no discrimination is intended and no endorsement by the Cooperative Extension Service is implied.
Pesticide recommendations in this publication were correct as of the “Modified Date" but always check the label that came with the purchased insecticide for the most current rates and restrictions.


The first name listed is the trade name of a product registered for use in corn for the listed pest. The name in (parentheses) listed below the trade name is the name of the active ingredient. The active ingredient name is provided because in many cases, there are other registered products containing the same active ingredient that may cost less, so producers should compare prices.


The number [in brackets] following a product is its Mode of Action number [MOA]. The more frequently insecticides with the same MOA are used, the more likely resistance will occur. This number provides an easy way to select different modes of action to avoid selecting for pests that are resistant to a certain mode of action.

Management of Insect and Mite Pests in Canola

Pest, Damage and Treatment Threshold Insecticide, Formulation, [MOA Group] and (Active Ingredient) Rate of Product and (lb active ingredient) per Acre Comments
Aphids Planting Time   Research data indicates that aphids are a consistent pest of winter canola in fall and winter. The use of seed treatments is highly recommended for early-season management of aphids. Additional foliar insecticide applications may be necessary for late-season control of aphids. Green peach aphid is known to have resistance to pyrethroid [MOA group 3] insecticides. Products that contain these active ingredients that are bundled with fungicides are available.
Cabbage aphid: small blue-gray aphid with short cornicles, and is usually covered with a powdery wax secretion. Gaucho 600 [4A] (imidacloprid) 10.24 to 25.6 fl oz/ cwt seed  
Green peach aphid: Pale green to yellow (sometimes pink) with long cornicles and three dark lines on the abdomen. Helix EXtra [4A] (thiamethoxam) 23 fl oz/cwt seed  
Turnip aphid: Pale gray green with short, swollen cornicles, 1/16-inch long. Winged adults can be recognized by presence of transverse dark bands on last two abdominal segments. Post-Plant    
Damage: High populations can cause stunting and discoloration of leaves. Feeding by cabbage
aphid can stop terminal growth and reduce yield. Damage is of little consequence after pod formation is completed.
Azadirachtin [UN] 1 pt. No PHI for harvest (Aza-direct, Ecozin).

* Group numbers in brackets [#] after the insecticide name are used to designate the mode of action of the insecticide according to the classification system developed by the Insecticide Resistance Action Committee, (IRAC) in 2011. It is intended to help in the selection of insecticides for preventative resistance management. If you make multiple applications for a specific pest during a growing season, simply select a registered insecticide with a different number for each application. To further delay resistance from developing, integrate other control methods into your pest management programs
