Peanuts I have received a few calls on foliage feeders in peanuts. Threshold counts and proper identification are important when it comes to foliage feeders. Make sure of your threshold counts 4-8 per foot of row. (So, by straddling two rows slap from your elbow to fingertips each side of the row into the middle which is 1.5 foot on each side and together it is close to 3 foot of row and that threshold would be 12-24 worms per spot). We recommend checking 10 spots in a peanut field. Some finding feeding signs but no
worms so that could be redneck peanut worm. Just because damage is present does not mean the worms are still there.
Cotton: Its August so pay closer attention to stink bugs and count your damaged internal bolls. Determine threshold depending on week of bloom. Also, some whiteflies reported so count down 5 leaves from terminal and look at the underside. The threshold is 5 nymphs on 50% of leaves.
I have attached pdfs on Whiteflies and Redbanded Stink Bugs
