Abstract

Western bean cutworms are being trapped again throughout Iowa in 2005. A network of pheromone traps have been placed throughout the state to assist in scouting efforts for this pest. Iowa State University Extension is cooperating with a number of individuals, including Pioneer Hi-Bred agronomists, in the operation of these traps. Most traps are now in place and results are being posted at www.ent.iastate.edu/trap/westernbeancutworm. Trap data cannot be used to predict which fields should be sprayed, rather they can indicate those areas that have significant moth flights and where fields should be scouted.
