Corn Earworm Trapping Collaborators Needed – Vegetable Crops Hotline

Corn Earworm Trapping Collaborators Needed

Once again this year I will be monitoring corn earworm flights throughout the state. Be sure to check the CEW trapping website for updates daily. If you produce sweetcorn or popcorn and are interested in hosting a trap, please contact me at (765) 494-6167 or lingwell@purdue.edu. I will provide the trap and the lure, but I need you to report the trap counts.
