May 16 Insect Update

— Written By

Be scouting for cutworms in tobacco and corn. I have seen some damage in fields especially late planted corn. Stinkbug numbers continue to rise corn and tobacco growers need to make note of this. Ear worm moth flights have been on the rise. Be looking in your refuge corn later on. I am seeing some mite and flea beetle damage not severe. Moth flights on corn borer, army worms have been light. Scout your fields spend time walking at looking at your crop.
