NameIowa Western Bean Cutworm Monitoring 2012

Western bean cutworm (WBC) is pest of corn that has been expanding it’s range across Iowa and into the more eastern states beyond. Beginning in 2003, Iowa State University set up a network of pheromone traps to monitor WBC range expansion and to provide moth emergence data to enhance scouting efforts. Cooperators have included local seed corn dealers, private corn and soybean agronomists and others interested in pest management issues.
