Steve, very nice and useful graphs depicting the lag from adult detection to larval production which is where the rubber hits the road for growers. The June spikes are indeed where we find the most regulatory closures due to detection. Thanks!

Yes Mark,  
In addition, the regulatory detections in June usually contain larger larvae that are readily visible by officials. These graphs illustrate that there is an opportunity to apply BT and other softer chemistries to the younger cohort of larvae in the earlier part of the year.
