I have received a call about peanut grades being lower based on damage from burrower bug. We do not see this very often in North Carolina but it can occur under dry conditions. Generally, the damage is more pronounced in reduced tillage but damage can occur in conventional tillage. This past summer included conditions that were very favorable for this insect to develop and subsequently cause damage. It can be much more pronounced further south in South Carolina and southeastern states compared with North Carolina and Virginia. I have attached links to a Cooperative Extension Service bulletin from the University of Georgia and an overview article from the Journal of Integrated Pest Management relative to this pest.
