2014 Missouri Black Cutworm Intensive Capture Counts

Moth captures in a pheromone trap do not indicate that treatment is necessary, but indicate that fields should be scouted. Be aware that there are several species of cutworm and this alert only applies to the black cutworm.

Be aware that not all counties have an active black cutworm trap. (View Missouri Black Cutworm Maps) For identification, scouting, and management information of black cutworm visit our "How To Scout" resources page.
