The foliar spray will help protect young plants as the seed treatment diminishes and plants are vulnerable to feeding injury. For a rescue foliar treatment, eco- nomic threshold level for feeding in- jury in canola is 25% from seedling to 6 leaf stage. Canola that has reached the 4-6 leaf stage can han- dle more feeding damage, unless it is the center stem (growth point) that is being damaged. These rescue treatments should be applied as soon as possible as one day of flea beetle infestation can do consider- able damage if conditions are fa- vorable. Refer to NDSU's 2014 North Dakota Field Crop Insect Management Guide for insecti- cides registered for flea beetle con- trol in canola. Extension Ento- mologist Janet Knodel suggests us- ing a high labeled rate of the insec£ ticide for a longer residue, since flea beetles will be active until the end of June. During years where flea beetle feeding time is long or ex- tended, yield loss of about 10% can be common even with the use of in- secticides. To get the best use of your res- cue foliar spray, the best time to ap- ply is during the warm, sunny part of the day when flea beetles are ac- tively feeding. Consider marking the edges of sprayed fields to warn any one of health hazards that could come with entering a freshly sprayed field. Remember the safety of your family and yourself as well when working with pesticides. Keep contaminated clothes separate from the rest, and wash them daily with a heavy duty detergent in hot water. Run small loads with the largest amount of water possible. Run an empty cycle after to limit exposure to the next load washed. Line dry clothes outside as sunlight helps break down pesticides and keeps your dryer from getting contami- nated. Any leather that is contam- inated should be thrown away as leather can never be completely cleaned; this includes hats with a leather strip on the inside. Anything that has been badly saturated should thrown away. Small amounts of pesticide exposure over time can have can chronic effects later on. the Queen's actual birth- day is in April, but tl e celebration is held in June. According to the offi- cial website of the British Monarchy, "Official cel- ebrations to mark Sov- ereigns' birthday have often been held on a day other than the actual birthday, particularly when the actual birth- day has not been in the summer. King Edward VII, for example, was born on 9 November, but his official birthday was marked throughout his reign in May or June when there was a greater likelihood of good weather for the Birthday Parade, also known as Trooping the Colour." This year's letter, sent from Windsor Castle, stated: "The Queen is very grateful for the kind message which you sent on the on the occasion of her eighty-eighth birth- day.
