Insects destroy many sugar-beets in Utah. In some years the incomes of the farmers of the state are greatly reduced because of the ravages of these pests. This circular has been written in the hope that the more important information about the insect pests of this valuable crop may be more readily available to the beet growers of the state.

The insects treated in this paper are grouped under two main heads. In the first division are included those insects affecting the tops or foliage of the beet. In the second division are those insects that feed on the roots.
