Ohio State University entomologists say the spread of the western bean cutworm continues eastward, detected in Wayne County, Ohio (northeast Ohio) on July 24 -- the farthest east the pest has been collected in the U.S.

Entomologist Andy Michel, Ron Hammond and Bruce Eisley say trap counts of eastern bean cutworms continue to increase. From July 22-28, their traps detected an additional 70 months, bringing the total for the year to 114. Most have been trapped in northwest Ohio.
