First Ripe Fruit - putting out traps.

Thursday, July 7, 2011

I was out in some fields yesterday and saw some good fruit set. A little bit surprising given the pollination weather we had. Healthy native pollinator populations appeared to help.

I also saw ripe fruit. This means fruit fly traps need to go out ASAP!

Given the weather we have had, fields that have a history of this pest should be monitored closely.

A reminder traps can be purchased at the WBPANS office in Debert.
