The Miridae, more commonly known as the &#8220;plant bugs,&#8221; include many economically important pest species. Oatman et al. (1964) conducted an ecological study of Arthropod populations in Wisconsin orchards and collected 24 different Mirids, among them <I>Lygus lineolaris</I> (P. de Beauvois), the tarnished plant bug. This insect feeds on a wide range of plants&#8212;including alfalfa (<I>Medicago sativa</I>), trefoil (<I>Trifolium</I> sp.), carrot (<I>Daucus carota</I>), bean (<I>Phaseolus vulgaris</I>), strawberry (<I>Frayaria</I> sp.), pear (<I>Pyrus communis</I>), and several ornamental plants including the chrysanthemum (<I>Chrysanthemum</I> sp.)&#8212;which are all grown in Vermont.
