Beet armyworm: Armyworm moths remain active across many locations with activity greatest Wellton and Yuma Valley.

Cabbage looper: Cabbage looper activity remains unusually high in many trap locations, relative to this time last year. Activity is particularly heavy in Dome Valley, Wellton/Roll and the south Yuma Valley.

Whitefly: Adults captures on sticky traps increase significantly over the past two weeks, particularly in the Yuma Valley.

Thrips: Thrips movement peaked at unusually high levels last week for fall populations in the Yuma Valley. Most other locations are normal for this time of the year.
