It appears that peak moth flight may have come and gone with only a minimal activity being detected this year. There may be pockets of elevated activity within the growing area. The May snow may have disrupted the over wintering.

Recommended Economic Threshold:

  • 60 moths in a 7-day period in a pheromone trap
  • 120 moths in a 7-day period in a black light trap
