Alert Details

Western bean cutworms continue to fly across portions of the eastern Great Lakes region. Trap counts are, on average, holding steady across southern Ontario and southwest Quebec, Canada with some increases even noted in a few areas (according to the latest numbers). High and Moderate risks remain for fields in these two provinces and also into extreme northwest Pennsylvania and New York for the next five days, but the overall risk in the United States is decreasing with only New York in Moderate/High risks by next week. Growers are urged to monitor their fields for western bean cutworm moths and larvae in or near the increased risk regions.
