• Overall, a very slow start! Below normal looper levels and almost no black cutworms detected since May.
  • True armyworm counts are increasing, both at Hyslop and throughout the valley (monitored near cereal, grass, and forage fields).
  • The hatch of winter cutworm at Hyslop is alarming, but aligned with what we know so far about their lifecycle. Females require about 4 weeks to mature eggs, which means larvae could be present by early to mid-August.
  • Given the recent heat wave, flea beetles will likely be present on brassicas. Scout vigilantly and often.
