The flight of the western bean cutworm (Loxagrotis albicosta (Smith)) was monitored in Nebraska for 14 years. This monitoring was conducted in an area where the host plant is corn and an area in which dry beans are the main host plant. No correlation in flights was found between the two areas. Prediction of flights from one year to the next is not possible from the data obtained. There is slight indication of 6 to 8 year periods between high populations.
