Insect Trapping Program// here is the normal content // ?>
The University of Delaware’s Extension IPM Program provides in-season insect trap information to help producers, agribusiness and consultants make informed insect management decision in field and vegetable crops.
Traps are monitored twice a week and current trap catches are posted on this website. The main pests monitored include corn earworms (CEW) , European corn borers (ECB), and true armyworm (TAW), and stink bugs.
Attention: For the 2017 growing season, we will no longer have a recorded phone message with current trap counts.
The last trap catch for the 2017 will be August 31st
