To assist growers with cotton and soybean scouting efforts, a network of blacklight traps across the state report weekly data for pest monitoring. In Perquimans County, a trap is located on Cedar Stretch Rd. in Hertford. This tool is mainly utilized to track corn earworm moth flights and as moth flights increase, the likelihood of moths laying eggs in your cotton or soybean fields increases. This record will alert growers of when to increase the frequency and intensity of scouting efforts. Trap data can be found by clicking the link below. To view the Perquimans flight trends, scroll to the bottom of the page once you click the link. To determine corn earworm thresholds in soybeans, find the Corn Earworm Economic Threshold Calculator by clicking the link below.
