Areawide Insect Trapping Network (March 4, 2015)
Results of pheromone and sticky trap catches can be viewed here.

Corn earworm: Corn earworm moth activity remains very low with very few captures in the traps and very similar to trends observed last year.

Beet armyworm: BAW activity is still relatively active in some locations, particularly compared in areas near alfalfa.

Cabbage looper: Cabbage looper moths remain active as well, similar to trends seen last January.

Whitefly: Adult movement remains very low which is to be expected. However, adults can readily be found on seedling melons in the Yuma Valley.

Thrips: Thrips movement has begun to increase, particularly in the Yuma Valley and Wellton.

Leafminers: Numbers on traps remain low across all trap locations.

Aphids: Alate (winged) movement remains low with a slight peak last week in the Yuma Valley near the river.
