Few Cutworms Caught in Traps

Once again, there is little to report in regard to intense captures of black cutworm moths. Warm southerly winds did bring a few black cutworm moths north to some areas such as Knox, Lee, and Stephenson counties, but traps in other areas of the state remained empty. St. Clair was the lone county reporting an intense capture this past week (April 17 and 18). Visit the Insect Monitoring Network ( to keep up to date on trap counts in the weeks to come.--Kelly Cook
