Abstract

Trap catches of western bean cutworms increased during the first week of July. A blacklight trap operated by the Linn family north of Correctionville (east of Sioux City) collected 1 moth on June 30, 12 on July 4, 22 on July 5, 15 on July 6, and 17 on July 7. Todd Vagts, Iowa State University Extension field specialist-crops specialist, reports catching moths at Castana on July 5 and 8.
