Fall flight of Wheathead Armyworm moths begins?
Last week I found a "false" Wheathead Armyworm moth (1)in a pheromone trap near Helix, Oregon. This is the first moth I have seen since last June. I will continue to monitor the traps through September to see if we do indeed get a fall flight of moths as literature suggests is possible.
Fall seeding of winter wheat has starting here in northeastern Oregon, along with some forest fires and blazing sunsets.
