We are now emptying the traps weekly rather than twice-weekly.
Between 30th October and 6th November our 3 yellow water traps captured:
- Cabbage root flies - 0 male and 0 female
- Bean seed flies - 42
- Pollen beetles - 5
- Flea beetles - 10
- Cabbage stem weevil - 1
- Cabbage seed weevil - 0
- Cabbage stem flea beetle - 4
We caught 7 carrot flies on 3 sticky traps in our second sowing of carrots.
There were no diamond-back moths, no silver Y moths, no cabbage moths and 5 turnip moths in our pheromone traps (2 traps per pest).
We are no longer taking samples for cabbage root fly eggs.
