    Description: Small white worms about 1/3" long. Large, winged adult flies are brown or gray, 1/4" long with a humpback appearance. Maggots burrow into onion bulbs destroying the crop. Damage is more serious in wet years.


    Control: When needed, foliage can be sprayed with *malathion or diazinon when flies appear, about the time forsythia blooms. * Place Diazinon granules in furrow at planting time. Destroy culls immediately after harvest. * Pesticide use and recommendations for various areas are constantly changing. Check with your County agent for current recommendations.


    They probably will have smelly breath too.
