We are in week two of The Ohio State University Western bean cutworm (WBC) monitoring network. Last week’s trap count included WBC adults captured from July 1 – July 6. Overall, 22 counties monitored 64 traps across Ohio. Trap counts increased slightly, resulting in a total of 18 WBC adults (0.3 average moths per trap) (Figure 1). None of the counties reported capturing more than 1 moth / day over the 7 day monitoring period; therefore, all counties currently remain below the recommended levels that indicate scouting for egg masses should begin.
