Black Cutworm Trap Update

This was the 2nd week for our Black Cutworm Trap. This week we collected 7 adult moths. Understanding BCW numbers before planting will help identify regions that may be at increased risk for BCW. As planting continues and trap numbers increase, plan to monitor for BCW larvae after corn is planted, especially in fields with a lot of broadleaf weeds, such as chickweed and purple dead nettle.
