Alert Details

Western bean cutworm risks remain mainly across the eastern Great Lakes region for the next week as the annual moth flight continues. Moderate risks extend from southern Ontario northeast as far as southwest Quebec province in Canada, with Low risks from as far west as the Central Sands region of Wisconsin east into much of lower Michigan and additional surrounding areas of Ontario and Quebec, Canada as well as northern/upstate New York. Growers in these areas should continue to scout fields and monitor traps until either the flight subsides and/or the crop is harvested.
