Pepper Weevil Trap Catch Map
Rutgers Cooperative Extension IPM personnel are currently deploying blacklight trap and insect pheromone trap networks throughout the state. Statewide sampling will commence shortly, and as soon as target pests begin to appear, insect data will be published in the Plant and Pest Advisory and on the NJAES website @ http://tinyurl.com/njaes-ipm-maps
Pest populations of European corn borer (ECB), corn earworm (CEW) and brown marmorated stink bug (BMSB) from blacklight samples will be posted in table and in map format. Additionally, adult CEW populations from a pheromone network in southern NJ will be posted in both formats. Pepper weevil trap catches from southern NJ will be posted in map format. Beet armyworm (BAW) adult populations from a southern NJ pheromone network will be posted in table form beginning in mid-July.
