Abstract: The western New York pheromone trap network is an affiliation of extension staff, consultants and farmers, who collaborate to set up and maintain a network of pheromone traps near sweet corn fields throughout western New York .  In 2006, traps were set up at 17 locations.  The trap network is funded by the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program, and in-kind contributions from farmers and consultants who donate their time and mileage to check traps.  This survey was developed by Abby Seaman and Curt Petzoldt and administered by the National Agricultural Statistics Service New York Field Office for the purpose of determining the impact of the trap network on the pest management practices of sweet corn growers in the 29 western New York counties in Seaman’s program area.
