Brooks County Moth Captures – Corn Earworm &Tobacco Budworm Monitoring

This week’s trap numbers reveal a drastic increase in the number of Corn Earworm (CEW) captures.  Please remember that Bt cottons are not immune to CEW damage.  We should monitor blooms, bloom tagged bolls, and small bolls for CEW larvae that is 1/4 inch or greater in length.  Larvae of this size are likely to survive on Bt cotton.
