Black Cutworm (Agrotis ipsilon) moth counts are significantly 
above average. The average valley wide moth count is nearly
three times what would be considered normal.  Black cutworm 
infestations are very patchy.  I am not 100% certain that we are
 in a major cutworm outbreak. We will know in a week or two.  
 One of the problems with black cutworm damage in sweet corn 
is that by the time you see the damage, it is too late to control.
