Fall armyworm trap numbers from September 19th - 25th slightly increased over the past week to 6.6 moths per trap (up from 4.6), but overall remain low for the state. Three counties reported an average over 7 moths per trap including Hardin, Paulding and Sandusky (Figure 1).  This will be our last week reporting FAW trap numbers for the CORN newsletter.
