    The majority of counties in Ohio are now past Western bean cutworm (WBC) adult moth peak flight. Trapping efforts last week (August 5 – August 11) resulted in 195 WBC adults across the state (a decrease from 824) and a statewide average of 2.5 moths/trap (a decrease from 10.4 average) (Figure 1). Currently the only location with scouting levels is Lucas County.

    A number of counties saw a decrease in Western bean cutworm (WBC) moths captured last week (July 29 – August 4); however, there are still counties that need to be on the lookout for WBC egg masses and larvae. Overall, 25 counties monitored 79 traps across Ohio and resulted in 824 WBC adults (down from 2842 total last week) and a statewide average of 10.4 moths/trap (down from 36.0 average last week) (Figure 1). Counties that have averages indicating scouting for WBC egg masses and larvae include: Ashtabula, Defiance Fulton, Geauga, Hancock, Lake, Lorain, Lucas, Paulding, Williams and Wood.
