Sixteen sites reporting this week. European corn borer (ECB-E) was caught at one location while ECB-Z was caught at two locations. Both corn earworm (CEW) and fall armyworm (FAW) numbers have dropped this week (see graph below). CEW was reported from 12 sites but total numbers are much lower than last week. At eight of the sites the numbers are still high enough to drive the spray schedule for green silking corn. FAW was caught at all but one of the reporting sites this week, but again numbers have dropped as compared to last week.   A single Western bean cutworm (WBC) moth was caught in Eden this week (WBC) but otherwise the flight has finished.

This will be the last post of the season. I would like to thank all of the cooperators for helping to collect data this year. Please contact me with any questions or suggestions for improvements (mez4@cornell.edu).

Average sweet corn trap catches for all reporting sites from 5.20.14 to 9.23.14.
