Areawide Insect Trapping Network (December 11, 2013)
Results of pheromone and sticky trap catches can be viewed here.

Corn earworm/Tobacco budworm: Flight activity has declined significantly in all growing areas, and no moths have been captured in any of the traps since Nov 15.

Cabbage looper/Beet armyworm: Flight activity continues to decrease in all areas consistent with the cold weather we have been experiencing. Very few moths have been captured in the last week.

Whitefly: Overall, sticky traps show that adult movement is almost negligible consistent with the cold weather.

Thrips: Numbers were low in all locations this week, again likely a reflection of cooler weather.

Aphids: Winged aphids catches were observed in all trap locations. Activity remains high in the South Yuma Valley. Alate green peach aphids are beginning to show up on traps.

For questions or comments on any of the topics please contact Marco Pena at the Yuma Agricultural Center.
