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!
