Corn earworm: Corn earworm moth activity has been somewhat lower thus far this fall. One trap location in the Yuma Valley near the river (and alfalfa) had increased activity during the past week.

Beet armyworm: BAW activity is down relative to this time last year, but activity is beginning to pick up in Dome Valley, Roll and Yuma Valley.

Cabbage looper: Cabbage looper activity has been very light to date.

Whitefly: Adult movement is much lower than last season, and remains low across the entire growing area.

Thrips: Thrips movement is similarly low throughout the area.

Leafminers: Adult activity is low and comparable to last season.

Aphids: As expected, no aphids have been detected on traps yet.
