Alert Details

Moderate western bean cutworm risks remain across portions of southern Ontario into extreme southwest Quebec, Canada with Low risks from northern/eastern Michigan into Ontario and Quebec, Canada. Moth counts are on the decline across much of the risk area but the most recent trap counts continue to indicate scattered captures from Michigan into Canada. Look for a continued decrease in risk areas and levels in the coming week to ten days as the window for potential crop damage decreases and the insect’s once-a-year generation ends.
