A new method of controlling codling moth has been developed at WSU where timing of the sprays is altered to take advantage of the slow start of egg laying.

Preserving Biocontrol Agents

Monday May 16, 2016 1:30pm
Natural enemies (NE) are crucial to the long-term stability of management programs. Pesticides need to be chosen not only on the basis of efficacy against the pests, but also by minimizing their effect on natural enemies. DAS provides both the effects on pests and on the key natural enemies.

Monitoring Codling Moth Damage

Monday May 16, 2016 1:30pm
Monitoring codling moth at the end of each generation gives a good indication of the success of your management program and where in the orchard damage occurs. The sampling protocol for the Taiwan protocol can give you good accuracy and is simple to implement. Banding trees can serve as monitoring and control technique.

Spider Mite Control During the Summer

Monday May 16, 2016 1:30pm
There are currently lots of options to control spider mites in orchards. However, preventing outbreaks by avoiding pesticides toxic to predatory mites and their alternative prey is always first choice. If uncontrolled, spider mites can go through a single generation in 7-10 days during summer and increase their numbers exponentially. Monitoring helps to follow spider mite population growth and to intervene when necessary.
