August 23rd Insect Update

— Written By

Ear worm counts have been up. Stinkbug counts are going up and need to be scouted for in fields. Black Cut Worm numbers are down so are European Corn Bore numbers. Army Worms were bad in the previous weeks and still need to be scouted for damage in sorghum and soybeans. Keep scouting fields late summer insect numbers can be devastating with all the early rains.
