Bollworm trap counts rose in most counties this week, particularly in the Northeastern Hills region of the state. Numbers are typical for this time of the year and susceptible crops may need to be sprayed. Tobacco budworm counts were low throughout the state except in Noxubee county. Each of the 4 traps in this county had more than 40 moths this week, so it appears that for some reason there are many tobacco budworm moths in this area now. Growers in this area should recognize that many Heliothine eggs and small worms may be tobacco budworm and respond accordingly. In all other areas of Mississippi most eggs and larvae should be bollworms based on these trap catches.
