Insect Trap Counts, June 23, 2011

Pheromone trap counts for bollworm, tobacco budwrom and beet armyworm were all similar to last week in all regions. Counts of tobacco budworm and beet armyworm are high compared to historical data, especially in the central part of the state. Southwestern corn borer trap captures were still low this past week in many areas, with some exceptions.  Trap captures near some fields in Panola, Pontotoc, and Tallahatchie Counties exceeded 300 moths per trap this week.  One field in Leflore County had captures that exceeded 400 moths per trap and another field in Leflore County had captures that exceeded 2,000 moths per trap. Ongoing research indicates that second generation SWCB rarely cause economic damage when weekly trap counts are less than 200 moths/trap.
