How to Read the Maps

Black Cutworm

May 26, 2017
No Risk

No risk of black cutworm migration is predicted in the next five days. Growers, however, should be scouting for potential black cutworm cutting or feeding damage as larvae from flights earlier this spring are entering into damaging instar growth stages in many areas.

Corn Earworm

May 26, 2017
No Risk

No risk of corn earworm migration is predicted in the next five days.

Corn Rootworm

May 26, 2017
No Risk

Initial corn rootworm hatches will be possible late this week into next weekend from southwest into eastern Illinois and also into far western Indiana as soil temperature heat unit accumulations have reached or exceeded initial hatch thresholds in some fields in the risk area. Hatches may be delayed and/or more sporadic this year, however, due to excessive rainfall earlier in the month across this same region.

Soybean Aphid

May 26, 2017
No Risk

No risk of soybean aphid damage or migration is predicted in the next five days.

Western Bean Cutworm

May 26, 2017
No Risk

No risk of western bean cutworm emergence or development is predicted in the next five days.
