Southwestern corn borer mothpheromone trap catches by county are reported in the link below. With the exception of a single location in Monroe County, catches are low across the state as the crop is winding down for the season. We generally recommend considering a foliar application when numbers are over 100 per trap per week. For recommended insecticides consult MP144 Insecticide Recommendations for Arkansas. For specific trap locations contact your local County Extension Agent.
