Black light trap catches for week ending June 20, 2013

Low numbers of corn earworm moths were reported this week from black light trap operators. Nightly averages were: Southampton = 0.3 (from C. Drake); Warsaw = 0.5 (M. Beahm); Petersburg = 1.3 (M. Kraemer); Suffolk = 0.1 (A. Herbert). Brown marmorated stink bugs were only found at the Petersburg trap (2.3 per night) [M. Kraemer], but they were captured in a Virginia Beach black light trap earlier this month (1.3 per night for June 7-13) [provided by H. Doughty]. Thanks to the above-mentioned trap operators for their reports this week.
