Insect Trap Counts, July 11, 2014 (updated July 12, 2014)

Bollworm and tobacco budworm counts this week were similar to last week and fairly typical compared to long-term averages. Except for two traps, one in Sunflower county (310 moths) and another in Washington county (142 moths), all traps caught less than 70 moths during the week. With these levels of moth pressure, feeding damage in unprotected fields will likely be visible, but it may not be at economically damaging levels.

Southwestern corn borer counts this week were much higher this week in some areas, primarily in the central Delta. In those areas, treatments should be considered for non-Bt corn fields that have not reached the dough stage. Counts have remained low in other parts of the state.
