Sweet Corn Pheromone Trap Network for Western New York,
This is a seasonal scouting report giving growers in the Western New York area information on the presence of sweet corn pests and recommendations on scouting and thresholds. The report is written by Abby Seaman, NYS IPM's Area Extension Educator for Vegetables.
The sweet corn moths are off to a slow start this season. Many locations have still had no catches, and the numbers are very low for those that have. Corn started under plastic or row cover has a big head start this season and will be more attractive to corn borer compared with bare ground fields once the moth flight gets going.
