Pherocon AM Traps for Western Corn Rootworms: How Can I Order Them?

We've had a number of calls from individuals who want to order Pherocon AM traps to use in soybean fields this summer for monitoring western corn rootworm adults. In later editions of this Bulletin, we will offer much more detail regarding how to deploy these traps and will describe what economic thresholds should be used. For now, if you're interested, we offer the following two addresses. Also, there are likely many other sources available for these traps. We encourage you to do some comparison shopping.
