over 15 moths in trap late morning. I think I will need to spray.

From todays PGRO update:

Pea moth activity has been sporadic during the 2021 season, some areas reaching threshold at the beginning of June and some in mid-June. The PGRO spray date prediction model is generally predicting a period of about 13-15 days between threshold and spray date.
The spray date is generated using met data and predicts when eggs will hatch and larvae are crawling across the plant, the larvae being the target of insecticide sprays.
