Insect Trap Counts, May 23, 2012

Pheromone trap counts for bollworm and tobacco budworm for the week are much lower than last week or than last year at this time, particularly in the Delta. Therefore, corn that is now silking may not have as much corn earworm (bollworm) feeding as frequently observed. However, with the warm temperatures, the current larvae and pupae will soon emerge as adults and begin another generation, so remain alert for bollworm infestations in all crops.
