The first two insect forecasting maps are online, and the rest are due out in January.
The wheat midge survey found none of the pests in the Peace region — a complete reversal of the previous year. Central Alberta has some hot spots, while southern Alberta has low numbers save for some irrigated fields in the Taber/40 Mile area. The wheat stem sawfly survey found the lowest numbers in a decade.
Other forecasting maps will focus on cabbage seed pod weevil, pea leaf weevil, bertha army worm and grasshoppers.
