Alert Details

Little to no black cutworm migration risk is predicted in the next five days. Growers with newly-emerged corn, however, are encouraged to scout fields and look for signs of black cutworms. Numerous moth flights have occurred across much of the corn-growing region this spring, and black cutworm damage is possible especially given the scattered nature of planting this year, making fields that are newly-emerged even more attractive to black cutworms.
