Pheromone Trap Counts, July 2, 2015

The biggest change for this week is the rise in southwestern corn borer trap counts. High numbers were spotty in the Delta with one Leflore county trap recording 668 moths in a week. Coahoma, Quitman and Sunflower counties were the only other counties to have any traps with more than 50 moths. Southwestern corn borer were seldom found outside the Delta region this week. Early-planted corn is now matured past an attractive stage for southwestern corn borer, so it appears that little corn is at high risk of injury from southwestern corn borer this year.

Bollworm counts continue to edge higher in the Delta, but are still lower than historical numbers in most areas. Tobacco budworm continues to be a low-level pest this year, averaging less than 10 moths per trap in all counties.TrapCounts7-2-15
