Areawide Insect Trapping Network (February 19, 2014)
Results of pheromone and sticky trap catches can be viewed here.

Corn earworm/Tobacco budworm: Corn earworm activity continues in all trapping areas. All traps captured at least 1 moth, and in Wellton, averaged 0.5 moths / trap/night.

Cabbage looper/Beet armyworm: Beet armyworm activity is beginning to increase, but cabbage looper moth activity picked up significantly in all locations this week, particularly in Wellton.

Whitefly: Adult activity has been negligible, consistent with the cooler weather.

Thrips: Thrips numbers remain unusually low given the warm, dry weather experienced over the past month, but showing up in large numbers in fields.

Aphids: Winged aphids catches down from 2 weeks ago in all traps. Alate green peach aphids were found on all traps.
