  2. Western Bean Cutworm Video

    Apr 24, 2018

    A new entomology video discussing western bean cutworm (WBC) biology, scouting and management is now available to view. The WBC is an active pest of corn in Ohio, and with recent reports of resistant WBC to Cry1F hybrids, it is more important than ever to monitor for WBC populations. Monitoring in traps targets adult WBC from late June through September with the peak flight typically occurring in July.  By monitoring adult populations, we are able predict the peak flight and initiate scouting efforts for egg masses. For more information on WBC watch our video below!

     

  3. Ohio Soybean Pollinator Survey Update

    When in the fields monitoring soybeans, we often see an array of bee species visiting soybean flowers. These bees can enhance yield even though soybeans are self-pollinating; but do we know what species are foraging Ohio soybean fields? And how far into soybean fields are bees foraging? To answer these questions, a survey was conducted during 2016 in eight Ohio soybean fields across the state.
