Use a Burner to Organically Control Insects

Burners use propane-fueled torches to generate heat that measures roughly 2,200 degrees F. The heat can kill insects and their eggs found above the soil surface and within about the top 1/8 inch of soil. The heat can control insects such as stink bugs and armyworms. Growers can use a burner pre-emergence or post-emergence depending on insect pressure. Note that using a burner while soybeans are blooming will harm the crop.
