Alert Details

The main focus region for western bean cutworm emergence is now from the upper Midwest into the Great Lakes region and Ontario, Canada. Many areas within the red high risk region are now seeing peak flights with continued increases noted especially across the Great Lakes region and into Canada. Look for continued high counts and egg laying in these areas over the next week or so.

Across the higher corn production states of Nebraska into Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana, moth catches continue to decrease rather rapidly with the peak flight now completed where moths were captured this growing season.
