Areawide Insect Trapping Network (October 4, 2017)
Results of pheromone and sticky trap catches can be viewed here.

Corn earworm: Moth activity has been steadily declining, but still higher than last season in many trap locations.

Beet armyworm: Moth activity was comparable to catches this time last season, and remain steady in many locations, particularly in the Gila Valley.

Cabbage looper: Cabbage looper activity remains comparatively lower than previous years, and is heaviest in Dome/Wellton and Gila Valley.

Whitefly: Adults captures on sticky traps are decreasing throughout the area to seasonal normal levels

Thrips: Thrips activity remains low at all trap locations.

Aphids: Aphid activity spiked last week in the North Gila Valley. A little early, but considering the cooler weather and winds out of north, not surprising.

Leafminers: Adult activity remains low over the past 2 weeks.
