Black light trap captures for the week ending July 28, 2016

Corn earworm (bollworm) moth captures in the black light traps are beginning to pick up in Suffolk, with a slight increase in Prince George Co., and low numbers still in Warsaw and Southampton Co.  Pheromone trap captures of corn earworm moths (the ones that go into our adult vial tests) really spiked this week in Suffolk; additionally, we caught nearly 100 moths in one night with 3 pheromone traps placed in a field just outside of Franklin in Southampton Co.  Brown marmorated stink bug catches have increased at Warsaw, with a few reported from Prince George Co., Southampton Co. and Suffolk.  Thanks to Livvy Preisser (Southampton Co. ANR Agent), Mary Beahm (Eastern Virginia AREC in Warsaw), Scott Reiter (Prince George ANR Agent), cooperating growers, and the Entomology crew at the Tidewater AREC in Suffolk for their reports this week.  The attached pdf contains more details on the black light trap captures this season.  BLT_28_Jul_2016
