Mississippi early June pheromone trap count report

Mississippi tobacco budworm and bollworm trap numbers fall slightly in early June compared to late May.

According to a June 7 report by Fred Musser, MSU research entomologist, “bollworm and tobacco budworm trap counts were somewhat lower this week compared to last week. Bollworm counts are higher than last year, but lower than the five-year average counts. Tobacco budworm counts are among the lowest recorded during the last fiveyears. Based on these counts, silking corn will likely have some corn earworms, but pest pressure should not be very severe.”
