The UNL Entomology Department operates black light traps at four locations to monitor insect activity as an early warning of potential pest problems. Treatment decisions cannot be made on the basis of light trap data, but they can alert us to what pests are active and their seasonal occurrence.

Light Trap Locations

  • West Central Research and Extension Center, North Platte
  • South Central Agricultural Lab, Clay Center
  • Eastern Nebraska Research and Extension Center, Mead
  • Haskell Agricultural Lab, Concord

Data for all four locations can be found online.
