COTTON BLACKLIGHT TRAP 2012

The black light trap is monitored by cooperators within the county to provide a record of the flight activity of the corn earworm moth. This record assists in the determination of the onset of the major moth flight so producers and scouts can improve accuracy of scouting. Moth counts are taken on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and reported to the Extension Center. Counts taken on Wednesday and Friday are two-night counts and Monday counts are from three days.

CEW = Corn Earworm;    BS = Brown Stinkbug;    GS = Green Stinkbug;        – = No Data
