  2. Michael,

    If you haven’t treated for the armyworms, let me know. I would like to try to collect some. So please keep that in mind if you find another hot spot.


  3. Have collected armyworms Kelly. We will treat three fields for armyworms to protect wheat heads and boardering corn crop. Armyworms have defoliated flag leaf on majority of wheat stalks and heading for head of wheat.

    with 20% thrip infestation.
