Tobacco Budworm has been found at threshold levels in a few fields in Ben Hill and surrounding counties. Scouting is important. If you are not scouting for foliage feeders it may be a good time to take a look. I have checked a few fields around the county but have not found any at this point. The photo below was sent to me from consultant Brandon Phillips in a field that was at threshold and needed treatment. The treatment threshold for foliage feeders in peanuts is 4-8 larvae per foot of row
