Two graphs are shown for each moth. One combines trap site moth captures by date to show the flight activity over time and the other graph shows the moth activity by each of the counties trap site. The County Extension Agent has information for trap site locations in a county. Some counties may not have been able to report their trap catches yet for a particular week.
Southwestern corn borer
The graph with the county moth trap catches combined by date shows that the first moth flight peaked on June 22 and has declined to a few mothsby the July 6 sample date (Fig. 1). The graph showing weekly trap catches by a counties trap sites shows that Dallam, Deaf Smith, and Moore counties had the heaviest activity of southwestern moths (Fig. 2). Trap site 1 in Deaf Smith county had the most moths captured from June 9 to July 7.

Fall armyworm trap catches were highest on June 9 and have declined each week after (Fig. 3). Counties with the highest fall armyworm activity have been Hale, Moore, Ochiltee, Randall, and Swisher (Fig. 4). Parmer had difficulties setting up traps and was only able to report trap catches on June 30.

Western Bean Cutworm
Western bean cutworm (WBC) trap catches has increased every week with the highest numbers reported on July 6 (Fig. 5). The moth activity of WBC has been more wide spread across several counties this year. But, this last week there was higher activity in Dallam, Hartley and Moore counties (Fig. 6).
