Areawide Insect Trapping Network (February 5, 2014)
Results of pheromone and sticky trap catches can be viewed here.

Corn earworm/Tobacco budworm: Corn earworm activity is starting to pick up. All traps captured at least 1 moth, and in the North Gila Valley, averaged 0.5 moths / trap/night.

Cabbage looper/Beet armyworm: Beet armyworm activity remains light, but cabbage looper moth activity picked up significantly this week, particularly in the Gila Valley.

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.

Aphids: Winged aphids catches increased significantly in all traps over the past two weeks, particularly in the Gila and Yuma Valleys. Alate green peach aphids were found on all traps.
