NY Sweet Corn Trap Network Report 8.30.16

Fifteen sites reported this week for Western NY. European corn borer (ECB)-E was caught at four sites and ECB-Z was caught at only one site1. Corn earworm (CEW) was caught at twelve sites, with ten sites high enough to require a 4, 5, or 6 day spray schedule (see table at bottom of post). Fall armyworm (FAW) was caught at ten sites and Western bean cutworm (WBC) was caught at six sites this week. Please see the bottom of this post for a table of Eastern NY trap locations.

Average sweet corn trap catches for all reporting sites from 5.31.16 - 8.30.16

Average sweet corn trap catches for all reporting sites from 5.31.16 – 8.30.16

FAW has decreased from last weeks high of an average of 20 moths per site to this weeks average of about 7 moths per site. CEW remains at an average of 7 moths per site for the last two weeks. At sites where CEW are being caught in high enough numbers to determine the spray schedule, those applications will be sufficient to take care of other worm pests that are present
