European Corn Borer Trapping Network (07/01/21)
A trapping network is being monitored for the Z- and E-races of European corn borer in corn fields of ND. A modified Hartstack trap is being used for trapping ECB moths in grassy field ditches. Last week, we detected our first trap catch for the Z-ECB moths in Ransom County near Shenford and Shelton. Next week, we will discuss field scouting for ECB moths in corn fields. Thanks to the ND Corn Council for support.
