40 Western Bean Cutworm traps like the one shown above have been positioned alongside Pioneer Sales Rep Corn plots in the Essex, Kent,Lambton,Elgin and Middlesex County area.The first Western Bean Cutworm moth of the year was found in one of our traps near the town of Essex in Essex County on Saturday June 27th.Western bean cutworm moths are quite large.
They are distinguishable from other moths by their distictive bomerang and full moon markings on both wings.They also have a distinctive white band that runs down the peripheral edge of their wings.The only technology that will help farmers control the ravages of Western Bean Cutworm is Herculex l.
