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

Corn earworm/Tobacco budworm: Corn earworm activity continues to remain steady in most trapping areas, and a particularly sharp increase in flight activity was observed in the south Yuma Valley.

Cabbage looper/Beet armyworm: Beet armyworm activity continues to increase, and cabbage looper moth activity remains steady in all locations this week, particularly in Wellton.

Whitefly: Adult activity remains negligible in all areas.

Thrips: Thrips numbers are beginning to increase to seasonal highs as lettuce acerage begins to steadily decline.

Aphids: Winged aphids remain steady over the past two weeks in all traps. Alate green peach aphid numbers were the dominant aphid species. Cabbage aphid alates were also observed.
