Despite the overall decrease in WBC numbers, ten counties are currently at the threshold (an average of 7 or more) indicating to scout for egg masses including, Ashtabula, Fulton, Geauga, Henry, Huron, Lucas, Sandusky, Wayne, Williams and Wood.

A total of 27 counties monitored 87 traps, resulting in 418 WBC adults (a statewide average of 4.8 moths per trap).

Monitoring for WBC moths will continue in many counties until the end of August.
