WBC Trap Network Has Moved!

The Western Bean Cutworm Trap Network has moved! The network will now be called the Great Lakes and Maritimes Pest Monitoring Network and will include trap sites from Manitoba, Michigan, Ohio, Ontario, Quebec, New York, PEI and Nova Scotia.

Anyone is free to join the network and include their trap sites and catch data for western bean cutworm, European corn borer, black cutworm, corn earworm, true armyworm and fall armyworm. Trap catches can be entered in field and real time maps will display what each pest flight is doing. A new feature include a dashboard for each trap participant to see a summary of results of their trapping data during the season.
