Wireworms are larvae of click beetles Agriotes spp. The female beetle lays eggs from late April to late July, often beneath the surface of lawns or soil covered with plant foliage. Wireworm larvae are long, thin, shiny, yellowish-brown creatures with dark heads, resembling mealworms and measuring approximately 10 to 15mm in length. Root crops may exhibit tunnelling.
