NY Sweet Corn Trap Network Report 8.23.16

Eighteen sites reported this week for Western NY. European corn borer (ECB)-E was caught at five sites and ECB-Z were caught at seven sites. Corn earworm (CEW) are still increasing with twelve sites reporting trap catches this week. Eleven of the CEW catches were high enough to require a 4, 5, or 6 day spray schedule (see table at bottom of post). Fall armyworm (FAW) was caught at fourteen sites and Western bean cutworm (WBC) was caught at ten sites this week. No reports were received from Eastern NY at this time. The Eastern NY table will be updated when they come in.

 

Average sweet corn trap catches for all reporting sites from 5.31.16 - 8.23.16

Average sweet corn trap catches for all reporting sites from 5.31.16 – 8.23.16

Both CEW and FAW increased this week. 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.  Where CEW are not determining the spray schedule, scout to be sure that FAW and other pests are not above threshold.
