Areawide Insect Trapping Network (April 1, 2015)
Results of pheromone and sticky trap catches can be viewed here.

Corn earworm: Corn earworm moth activity was very high in some locations over the past 2 weeks, particularly in those areas near alfalfa.

Beet armyworm: BAW activity was very high during March consistent with warm temperatures.

Cabbage looper: Similarly, cabbage looper moth flights during March were nearly as high as observed in October and November.

Whitefly: Adult movement remains very low similar to what we observed last year.

Thrips: Thrips movement picked up in March consistent with the reduction in lettuce acres throughout the region.

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

Aphids: Alate (winged) activity was low over the past two weeks, with a slight peak last week. Overall, aphid flight were considerably lower than what we recorded spring in 2014.
