Caption: Pest damaged sugar beet. Researcher holding a sugar beet root that has been damaged by the sugar beet root maggot. These maggots are the immature larvae of the tiny Tetanops myopaeformis fly. They feed on the young sugar beet roots scarring, weakening and/or killing the plants by exposing their tender tissues to disease-causing pathogens. Photographed at the Northern Plains Agricultural Research Laboratory in Sidney, Montana, USA.
