Forecast maps for wheat midge and wheat stem sawfly are now available as well as results from the pea leaf weevil survey.

Wheat midge numbers are down “quite substantially,” but sawfly numbers are up in many areas, said insect management specialist Scott Meers.

The pea leaf weevil survey found low overall numbers, but there were high counts in some areas — particularly in southern Alberta and along the Highway 2 corridor.

For more, go to the Alberta Agriculture website.

The remaining maps will be out in mid-January, including those for grasshoppers, bertha army worms and cabbage seed pod weevils.
