Alternatives to Pyrethroids for Managing Corn Earworm in Sweet Corn, Seed Corn, Tomatoes and Peppers

R. Weinzierl

July 2007

Review

To date, there are no reports of widespread failures of pyrethroid insecticides to control the corn earworm in midwestern North America. However, H. zea resistance to pyrethroids is a potential problem. If resistance compromises pyrethroid effectiveness, adopting or developing alternative management practices will be essential. This paper summarizes the current status of management alternatives for H. zea, specifically in commercial production of sweet corn, seed corn, tomatoes, and peppers.
