An Information Network for Corn Earworm and European Corn Borer Counts

April 3, 2003

In the next couple of weeks, we will be establishing a database for up-to-date information on counts of corn earworm and European corn borer moths from traps at various locations around Illinois. If you will be operating a corn earworm pheromone trap, or a light trap or a pheromone trap for European corn borer, we would like to ask for your help. We're looking for data providers to send in trap counts on a regular basis. We can now use e-mail updates and the Web to make counts readily available. As an example, check out the "Hines Report" on the IPM Web site, Ron Hines, senior research specialist at the University of Illinois Dixon Springs Agricultural Center, provides weekly updates of captures of several species of moths throughout the season.

We would like to establish a network of data providers. If you are interested in taking part in this project, please contact me at (217)333-6651 or Cook
