Areawide Insect Trapping Network (January 7, 2015)
Results of pheromone and sticky trap catches can be viewed here.

Corn earworm: corn earworm moth activity remains very low with very few captures in the traps.

Beet armyworm: In the past two weeks, trap catches of BAW have been very low. However, BAW larvae can readily be found in the field.

Cabbage looper: Cabbage looper moths were less active in the past two weeks, but still more active than we observed this time last year.

Whitefly: Adult movement is at its lowest point of the season which is to be expected.

Thrips: Similarly, Thrips movement in very low in most areas, comparable to what we saw last fall.

Leafminers: Numbers on traps remain low across all trap locations.

Aphids: Alate (winged) activity was low over the past two weeks, similar to this time last year.
