Insect Pheromone Trap Counts, July 26, 2013

As expected based on field observations, trap counts for bollworm were higher this week. They are not higher than historical averages, but are definitely high enough to cause economic infestations in some fields. Tobacco budworm pressure exists, but remains low, so most Heliothines found in crops will be bollworms. As corn begins to dry down, preferred oviposition sites will move to cotton, soybeans, and peanuts, so be alert for economic infestations in these crops.
