Corn earworm alert from MU IPM pest monitoring network

Potentially significant captures of Corn Earworm (Helicoverpa zea) have been reported in Pemiscot and Scott Counties. This is the 6th alert for Pemiscot County and the 1st for Scott County. A list of 2011 alerts can be viewed here.

Corn Earworm captures in a pheromone trap do not indicate that treatment is necessary, but indicate that fields should be scouted. Be aware that this alert applies only to Corn Earworm.

Be aware that not all counties have an active Corn Earworm trap. (View Missouri Corn Earworm Maps)
