This summer's dry conditions played a big role in the number and types of insects that developed.
Provincial Entomologist John Gavloski talked about the insects of most concern this year.
"There's really five that were of a higher level of concern. Those are flea beetles in canola, grasshoppers, cutworms, and in some parts of the province diamondback moth and bertha armyworm in canola."
Gavloski says farmers did need to spray for these insects in some areas.
He notes flea beetles, grasshoppers, cutworms and berth armyworms all overwinter well in Manitoba providing they get decent snow cover, so farmers should be scouting for them next year.
