Additional counties set up Fall armyworm (FAW) traps over the past week, resulting in a total of 18 counties monitoring across the state. The majority of counties reported low numbers of FAW (an average of 7 or less moths per week), except Lucas, Putnam and Wood counties (Figure 1). The overall statewide average was up slightly with 3.9 moths per trap (3.4 last week). We will continue monitoring and reporting FAW numbers in Ohio over the next 4 weeks.
