The Magnitude and Distribution of Western Bean Cutworm, and the Risk to Dry Beans
Western bean cutworm (WBC) moth counts were monitored with traps at 8 dry bean fields in Western NY in 2019. Traps were located in Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, and Steuben counties. Seven of the eight sites saw a decrease in total WBC trap catches as compared to previous years. Only the Wayland site, in Steuben Co., saw an increase in total trap catch with a nearly nine-fold increase in total WBC caught. This was also the only site where pod damage was observed.
