5 August 2019. Pheromone trap catches confirm WBC presence in most regions of New York State. NEWA WBC modeling indicates the threshold of 25% flight completion for egg mass scouting has been exceeded in all areas of the state except Franklin County.
An important reminder that WBC estimated flight emergence is only applicable when presence has been confirmed. Visit the NYSIPM Sweet Corn Pheromone Trap Report blog, updated weekly, to find detailed WBC trap catch information for your area, along with European corn borer, corn earworm, and fall armyworm.

2018 marked the ﬁrst year of collaboration between the Network for Environment and Weather Applications (NEWA), which is part of the New York State IPM Program at Cornell University, and University at Albany’s New York State Mesonet (NYSM). In March, ten data streams (table 1, ﬁgure 1) were established to link NYSM-generated weather data to the NEWA online agricultural decision support system, available for use by agricultural stakeholders across New York State. 2018 was successful, as demonstrated by metrics provided in table 2. 2019 is sure to attract more users to these locations on NEWA as awareness grows of their availability.
The successful collaboration between NEWA and NYS Mesonet was also featured as a showcase in the New York State IPM Program 2017-18 Annual Report. The report can be downloaded from this Cornell eCommons permalink:
