Trap catches for bollworm remained high in some areas this week. Several traps caught more than 200 moths, while one trap in Washington County had 568 moths this week. Overall, moth catches were somewhat lower than they were last week, but still high compared to long-term averages for both tobacco budworm and bollworm. Bollworm moths are presumably from larvae that developed in corn, meaning that they are healthy and more difficult to kill with pesticides than moths found earlier in the year.
