Alert Details

Western bean cutworm peak flight is expected to continue across a large portion of the corn-growing region in the next week. Fields from Nebraska into Iowa, southern Minnesota, northern Illinois, much of Wisconsin, Michigan, northeast Indiana, northern Ohio, and southwest Ontario, Canada are all in a High western bean cutworm emergence/flight risk in the next week. Moderate risks envelop much of the remainder of the corn-growing region (especially the central and northern parts) as peak flight has either occurred or is expected to occur in the next few weeks. Growers in the High and Moderate risk areas are urged to monitor their fields for potential moth activity and egg laying.
