A Slow Start to the Western Bean Cutworm Flight

Our faithful pheromone trappers are back in business, as they are now monitoring for the emergence of western bean cutworm moths from the soil. After the amount of damage reported from this pest last year in northern Indiana, I anticipated a big start to the season, so far that hasn’t been the case, see western bean cutworm pheromone trap report. It is still early, as this pest’s moth emergence happens over 6-8 weeks. Stay tuned for updated moth flight numbers and scouting alerts in future issues of the Pest&Crop.
