Black Cut Worm Trap
Good morning -- From East Central Indiana ! This will be my third year working with John Obermeyer at Purdue with a bug trap - I have to say this is a lot of fun to do - I have the trap over at dads place = home base for the shop and equipment , grain and general B.S. area - lol
Indiana has a very good extension service and research - Purdue being the anchor . Thought I would post up some pics - since its about to rain --- again .
BTW - Any of you other Hoosiers farmers - get on board and have some fun and gain some knowledge in entomology
This is the trap - As you can see - they are some BCW moths in the trap - You have to put these traps away from any type light - as in the night - it will act like a magnet and you will not get good numbers .
This pic was taken yesterday - Had 9 in there - Check out the one on the far right - notice the black
( Dagger ) type marks near the bottom of there wings - that is a east way to know what your looking at .
The red strip in the bottom of the trap is insecticide treated -
Well that's about it .
