Only a few locations still reporting this week. European corn borer was not caught at any of the reporting locations. Corn earworm (CEW) numbers remain high and were caught at nine location. Please refer to the table at the bottom for recommended spray schedule. Three sites reported FAW but at these location the CEW numbers were high enough to warrant a spray and the FAW would be controlled by this spray as well. No western bean cutworm (WBC) caught at any of the locations.

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. This was my first year coordinating the sweet corn trap network and I truly enjoyed the experience. Please contact me with any questions or suggestions for improvements. Also please take a few minutes to fill out a survey on how the trap network has impacted your pest management decisions. The survey is for growers, consultants and extension personnel. It is voluntary and completely confidential. No personal information will be collected. To access the survey online please go to https://cornell.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_5b8s6TZE7u4hPPD.
