Trap Counts, June 20, 2014

Bollworm trap catches were up in the Delta region this week to levels about normal for this time of year. Most bollworm eggs will be laid in corn at this time when many corn fields are at silk stage. University research has consistently failed to show any benefit from spraying for bollworms in field corn at this growth stage. Tobacco budworm trap counts also increased slightly, but they are still at very low levels. Southwestern corn borer counts remain very low throughout the state with no traps even close to a treatment threshold.
