There is a bit of confusion out there amongst our trap participants who are trying to identify their catches. Western bean cutworm (WBC) has a few look a likes. Plus Large Yellow Underwing moths are flying around this year which is confusing matters. Pay extra attention to the details that are on the wings.
Here is a link to a pdf to help sort out the look a likes and make sure you correctly identify WBC.
If ever in doubt, send us a pic of your catch and we will be happy to confirm your identification. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
