There’s an invasive bug -- the kudzu bug -- that has descended on the soybean crop in Sussex County.
It comes from Asia and has spread throughout the South in the last few years.
The bug has left damaged crops behind in its wake.
The Delaware Department of Agriculture says that the first of the bugs was spotted in a crop of pole lima beans.
And, state officials are encouraging vegetable growers to report suspected infestations.
Ed Kee, the state’s Secretary of Agriculture, told the Wilmington News Journal that it is not a crisis, yet.
