Results of pheromone and sticky trap catches can be viewed here.

Corn earworm: Corn earworm moth activity has increased slightly in the East county (47E) and south Yuma Valley (Co. 17 and Ave J).

Beet armyworm: BAW activity remains steady in traps, consistent with the warm weather we’ve been experiencing.

Cabbage looper: Cabbage looper moth activity remains light compared to last year, but increasing at some trap locations, particularly in Wellton/Dome.

Whitefly: Peak adult movement occurred recently so far this season, but still considerably lower than last year. Highest counts in traps located near fall melons which recently completed harvest.

Thrips: Thrips movement is on the rise, particularly in the eastern part of the Yuma growing region.

Leafminers: Adult activity peaked recently on traps near fall melons

Aphids: Aphids are beginning to consistently show up in most low cations in low numbers. Highest numbers found on traps in the N. Gila Valley and N. Yuma Valley consistent with changes in weather and wind patterns.
