Alert Details

Western bean cutworms continue to pose a risk to crops especially from Wisconsin east through the Great Lakes region and into Ontario, Canada where peak flights are ongoing or are beginning to decline. Growers in Ontario, Canada should especially continue to be on the lookout for moths/egg activity in their fields as counts are very high in some regions of the province and where heat unit accumulations are lagging in comparison to locations further south/west in the United States.
