What are wireworms?
A They are the grubs or larvae of click beetles, sometimes known as skipjacks. Although there are 60 or so species of click beetles, only five species (Agriotes obscurus, A. sputator, A. lineatus,
Athous haemorrhoidalis and Ctenicera) are troublesome to gardeners.

What to Look for:

Plants may wilt due to larval root feeding. Underground vegetables and tubers will have small burrowed tunnels. Leaves may have holes at the edges where adults feed.
