'Bug Light' Controls Tobacco Worm

Record #:
One of the most prolific and voracious pests in the tobacco industry--the tobacco horn worm--can now be controlled with electricity. Farmers are experiencing success with best control using a bug light that stops the worm before it hatches. Operating at low costs and with automatic timers, the light attracts the horn worm moth and then sucks it into a bag, preventing them from also laying eggs.
