Abstract

First report of western bean cutworm (Striacosta albicosta) in Pennsylvania.

Abstract

These results demonstrate that western bean cutworm moths were present in Pennsylvania in 2009, and the distribution and quality of the specimens suggest that populations have established. The data also suggest that universal traps work well for detection of low-level populations at least as well as milk jug traps.
