Armyworm Moth Flights

Intense flights of Armyworm moths have been reported at the Pleasant Plains, IL BRANDT Research Farm and throughout parts of Central IL and the Midwest.  In the last 10 days our trap at the research farm has collected 76 Armyworm moths.  We'll continue to monitor our traps and report findings, but scouting is always the best tool to determine thresholds for treatment should a field become infested.  Here is some more information from the University of Illinois Extension and Outreach:  http://extension.cropsciences.illinois.edu/fieldcrops/insects/armyworm/
