Trap Capture Information Delivery

David Owens, Extension Entomologist,

We will be firing up the blacklight and pheromone trap network in the next week or so. I have received several comments about the usefulness of the 800 number hotline Joanne maintained for a number of years. There are three options that I am aware of for trap capture information delivery. The first is bringing back the hotline. The second is an email to text service. This would involve my writing a message and the program would convert it to a text message and send it out. The third option would be a text alert with a link to an online recording. This would require internet access. Please let me know if you have any opinion on the subject that can be used to guide our efforts moving forward into this year. You can email me directly with your response at or fill out a two question survey here:

When the platform is selected and set up, we will alert y’all. Thanks!
