Heavy Armyworm Moth Flights Reported by University of Kentucky Entomologists

Entomologists at the University of Kentucky are reporting significant captures of armyworm moths this spring. Thus far the captures look very similar to those in 2006 and 2008, both outbreak years for this significant pest. Trap capture data can be viewed on their website. Both corn and wheat producers need to be especially vigilant in their scouting efforts for armyworm infestations this spring. For life cycle, biology, and management information please see the armyworm fact sheet.--Mike Gray
