Mean lethal time was ± h with ingestion of Entrust at 50 mg∙L−1. A lethal dose of Entrust at mg∙L−1 inhibited neither ingestion nor proboscis extension response of the insect. A detailed study of the adult corn earworm in the.

    When corn earworm is not present, sweet corn is still vulnerable to European corn borer, particularly in June and August. European corn borer is more predictable than corn earworm because it overwinters in Ohio, but the pest population can still vary in timing and vary in intensity from year to year depending on weather.

The corn earworm (Helicoverpa zea Boddie) is a common insect in corn. First and second generation caterpillars attack the whorl stage while the later generations are largely found in corn ears. Corn earworm larvae generally infest the ear through the silk and in years with heavy insect pressure, there can be multiple penetration sites.

Either blacklight or pheromone traps baited with corn earworm lures can be used. Blacklight traps can be placed near corn fields, but not necessarily in them, and give a reasonable estimate of populations up to one mile away from fields. Traps should be checked daily, and capture of any corn earworm moths should trigger treatment [1].

Therefore, a higher corn earworm threshold during R1—R3 is likely by: 5. Insecticides for Earworms in Sweet Corn. If shucking the husks from your home-grown sweet corn (Zea mays) reveals ears with chewed, brown tips, corn earworms (Helicoverpa zea) have already sampled.

Focus sampling for corn earworm beginning at flowering (R1), and pay special attention to late maturing fields. Moth catches in pheromone traps can indicate times when scouting for corn earworm should be intensified.

Take 25 sweeps with a sweep net and count the number of larvae that are found at 4. Insect Attractants and Traps 4 moths in traps indicate the potential for damaging infestations of cutworm larvae, producers are urged to check for cutworm density and crop damage in fields of seedling corn.
