Jack Baldwin, Extension entomologist, LSU AgCenter, says insect pressure in corn, grain sorghum and soybeans “has been light and scattered so far. The corn crop is finishing up, but I haven’t received a lot of reports of corn borer or stink bug activity. In grain sorghum, we’ve had a few reports of sorghum midge.”

Baldwin says the insect pressure in the state’s soybean crop “has been pretty light. Stink bugs haven’t been too bad, and I haven’t heard very much about the redbanded stink bug. But as we get into July and later into the summer, foliage feeding worms are more likely to be a problem.”
