    This is the final week for WBCW trap monitoring in Ohio as very few numbers are being reported in trap counts across the state. We would like to thank everyone for their participation including land owners and farm cooperators who allowed us to place traps in their fields and monitor WBCW this season. For week ending August 25th, a total of 61 traps were monitored in 19 counties. Overall, 21 WBCW adults were captured, with 12 counties reporting a “zero” for their trap count.
