Alert Details

Western bean cutworm peak flight is expected to continue across the eastern Great Lakes region for the next five days. High risks remain in far southeast Michigan, northern Ohio, northwest Pennsylvania and New York, and across the border into Ontario and southwest Quebec, Canada. Moderate risks surround the High risk area and are also in Wisconsin but only until the middle of the week as trap counts late last week continue to indicate moths but counts are rapidly dropping. Growers in the High and Moderate risk areas are urged to monitor their fields for signs of western bean cutworms whether it be moths, eggs, and/or new larvae activity.
