Cabbage looper/Beet armyworm: Beet armyworm remain active in most areas, and cabbage looper moth activity remains steady in all locations this week, particularly in Wellton and the Gila Valley.

Whitefly: Adult activity remains negligible in all areas relative to fall activity.

Thrips: Thrips numbers are beginning decrease again as produce acreage declines.
