Pecan Nut Casebearer Trap Catch Data

    The table below represents the capture of pecan nut casebearer moths we have set out around the state of Kansas. The casebearer moth flight begins in southern most counties and works northward over time. Growers should start scouting their orchards for damaged nut clusters 10 days after the moth flight has begun. You should starting seeing larval activity 12 to 16 days after first moth capture. Control measures should begin when you see first significant nut entry (2-3% of nut clusters have larvae feeding on nuts).
    Check this post regularly for data updates including additional locations.  General information on casebearer can be found here.
