2019 Armyworm Trapping August Update

2019 Armyworm Trapping August Update

By Luis Espino, UCCE Rice Farming Systems Advisor

Looks like the number if moths we are catching is staying low, except for a couple of locations. By this time last year, we were averaging 18 moths per night, mostly all true armyworm. This year, we are not catching more than 10 per night, and in some cases the majority are western yellowstriped armyworm. I have not heard of heavy infestations on headed rice yet.
