Insect Monitoring Network

Check on the arrival of insect pests in your area! The Insect Monitoring Network (http://www.ipm.uiuc.edu/fieldcrops/imn/index.html) will soon be reporting data for the 2004 growing season. This Web site provides a database of up-to-date information on black cutworm, corn earworm, and European corn borers caught in pheromone traps. Traps are monitored and weekly counts are submitted voluntarily by Extension educators and cooperators located throughout the state. The Web site also offers links to additional sources of information that provide current information on insect pests in Illinois.

We would like to thank the cooperators who worked with us last year and who have already signed on for another sea-son. Your support is greatly appreciated! We are continually seeking additional volunteers to become part of our network of cooperators. If you are interested in providing moth trap counts of black cutworm, corn earworm, or European corn borer, please contact me at (217)333-6652 or kcook8@uiuc.edu.--Kelly Cook
