Monitoring Adult Codling Moth

Monday May 16, 2016 1:30pm
Adult codling moth (CM) are monitored with traps baited with either CM pheromones or a mixture of pheromones and an attractant (Combo D/A lure). Pheromone traps should be placed in the upper 1/3 of the tree canopy before first apple blossoms open or by 100 DD since January 1 whichever comes first. If you are not using mating disruption...

Leafroller Sampling Made Easier

Monday May 16, 2016 1:30pm
Leafrollers are nearly impossible to sample when they are in the first 2-3 instars because they are so small. DAS provides intervals during which sampling should occur well ahead of time. To sample leafrollers...

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.

Bin Piles Are a Source of CM Off the Normal Model

Monday May 16, 2016 1:30pm
Bin piles placed in the orchard are often a source of codling moth. Larvae spin up in the bins in the fall and emerge when the bins are placed in the field. Because the bins in the center of a pile are insulated from temperature changes, adults emerge from bins at different times than predicted by the model.

Stinkbugs Seek Orchard When Shrubs Dry

Monday May 16, 2016 1:30pm
Adult stinkbugs puncture fruit with their beaks to feed on the fruit flesh. Stinkbug damage in apples can occur beginning in mid-summer and accumulate through the harvest period when new adults move into the orchard from outside habitats.

Oriental Fruit Moth Monitoring Required for Export to Mexico or Canada

Friday February 19, 2016 2:38pm
All stone fruit packed for shipment to Mexico or British Columbia, Canada must be inspected and be certified as free of oriental fruit moth (OFM). OFM must be monitored with traps from first adult flight throughout the season.
