Western bean cutworm adult. J. Smith, UGRC

Western bean cutworm trapping will be starting in early June. For those who are interested in trapping this year, I have provided a few resources below including Trap Set up and Monitoring Instructions, and a Trap Supply Checklist and Trap Supply Companies document. Those setting up trap sites are encouraged to include the traps on the Great Lakes Pest Monitoring Network at: https://arcg.is/0K5rnG

A trap week is from Monday to Sunday and trap counts need to be entered into the network by Tuesday of each week for the previous week’s moth counts.
