Trap Counts, July 18, 2014
Bollworm moth counts were up sharply across the state this week, so higher bollworm larval pressure should be expected over the next 1-2 weeks. Southwestern corn borer counts were high in Quitman, Tallahatchie and Leflore counties, but low elsewhere. Most corn is past the vulnerable window, so only late-planted corn that has not reached dough stage should be considered for treatment. Tobacco budworm pressure remained low for the week.
