Creating a Regional Trapping Network for Corn Rootworm Adults
Corn rootworm is a serious economic pest of corn throughout the North Central region, and this pest can be persistent, especially in areas with continuous corn production. Management continues to be challenging as corn rootworms readily adapt to limited management strategies. In 2021, a network was established that included university, industry, and government personnel from 12 states and 5 provinces to provide a unified message about corn rootworm management and develop a shared protocol for monitoring corn rootworm adults across our wide geography. The goals of the trapping network were to increase scouting efforts in corn, understand changes across years, and identify any trends across the region. This trapping effort is ongoing, but highlights from the 2021 trapping network will be shared.
