The western bean Cutworm monitoring program needs the help of bean producers in the province
- Peak moth flight for WBC is expected this week or next week (2-3 weeks earlier this year)
- WBC moth numbers in Ontario traps are much higher than last year
- bean growers need to scout their earliest planted fields starting this week for WBC feeding damage on the pods. If they find significant damage, they need to spray the field with Matador asap.
Please refer to the links in Tracey Baute’s “Bugblog” below for specific information.
- all bean growers are encouraged to email or call 519-784-7110.
“We need fields to do small plot research on insecticide efficacy.”
