Corn Earworm is widely considered to be one of the most costly crop pests in North America!
Corn Earworm (Helicoverpa zea) or Tomato Fruitworm is found throughout the United States, surviving over winter as far North as Kansas, New Jersey, Ohio, Virginia and Washington. They are highly dispersive and move from area to area very quickly, making their way to Northern US States and Southern Canada during summer months. Adult pests may arrive as soon as early May through August, depending on seasonal & environmental conditions. With a life cycle of approximately 30 days, several generations per season can be expected depending on location:
- 1 Generation - New York, Minnesota, Canada
- 2 Generations - Northeastern States
- 3 Generations - Central Great Plains, Maryland, Delaware
- 4 Generations - Lousiana, Mississippi, Northern California
- 5 Generations - Southern California
- 6-7 Generations - Flordia, South Texas
Corn Earworms and Tomato Fruitworms affect these crops and more:
- Lima bean
- Melons (all varieties)
- Sweet Potato

This seems to catch everything! I'm not even really sure what we have but it looks like lygus on the internet. Whatever it is all kinds of things are stuck inside this trap. Last year we used another wizard brand and it didn't do anything. If you ask they will send you a coupon.
The best complement to have an exceptional result, without a doubt a great purchase. I totally recommend it, the product arrived perfectly
La mejora de mi plantación es innegable, lo mejor del mercado. Muchas gracias vivagrow
Recomendadisimo sin duda, fácil de usar e infalible para proteger sus productos de esas molestas plagas que nos atacan en estas épocas
The quality of the product is very good, price quality you will not find something better without a doubt. It works great and that's what matters (para los que hablan español, viene con instrucciones en ESP por si te interesa es un calor agregado que se agradece) thanks alot
De haber sabido que este producto existía, no habría desperdiciando mi dinero antes, funciona al 100. No se dejen engañar por otras marcas y créeme que he probado varias. Con traducción del producto y todo, es perfecto
Extremely effective for monitoring and trapping corn borers. We do not have Loopers thankfully, but the pheromones should work for that too. Very good instructions and packaging.
We tried these for the Tomato Fruitworms in our garden and they seem to be working! We were not sure if this was the right trap but we have little grubs in the trap just like the photos show. We will see how the vegetables turn out this Fall.
