Insect Trap Counts, July 11, 2012

Bollworm pheromone trap catches were higher in all regions this week. Reports from field scouts also indicate that bollworms are being flushed more commonly from fields, so expect to see more bollworm larvae in the near future. Bollworm catches are still fairly low by historical standards, so management decisions should be made on a field-by-field basis. Tobacco budworm and beet armyworm catches were still fairly low, similar to previous weeks.
