Vegetable Insect Pest Monitoring in Arkansas

This interactive map of Arkansas shows locations of various insect trapping efforts by Extension Specialists and County Agents. When a location is clicked, the map will populate with insect trap data for that region to help indicate pest presence or absence. We are currently done monitoring for Squash Vine Borer (Melittia cucurbitae), Cabbage Looper (Trichoplusia ni), and Tomato Fruitworm Moth (Helicoverpa zea) for 2022. We will update the map at the start of the 2023 growing season.

Pest Alerts!


  • Raspberry Crown Borer applications should have been applied to blackberries by now. More info in the MP 467
