Banded Sunflower Moth Emerging

Pheromone traps ran by the NDSU Extension IPM scouts have trapped low numbers (<14 moths per trap per week) of banded sunflower moth in Cass, Barnes and Foster counties.  Sunflowers were in late vegetative to early bud (R1) stages.  I’ve also received reports of adult banded sunflower moth being observed in sunflowers in Canada (Source:  Troy Turner, Agronomist, National Sunflower Association of Canada).

Egg scouting is recommended during the R3 (Immature bud elongates >2.0 cm above nearest leaf) crop stage. Stay tuned for more information on banded sunflower moth scouting for eggs and adults and economic thresholds in the next issue of Crop & Pest Report
