WBC Trap Network

An extensive network of Western Bean Cutworm (WBC) traps across Ontario and Quebec will be used to detect the peak adult moth flights of this corn and dry bean pest. Trap catches will guide field scouting activities and the timing of management of WBC and will also be used to determine the extent of the expanding distribution of WBC.

Watch for weekly maps showing updates on trap catches province-wide (here).
