Remember to check blueberry maggot traps

Friday, July 12, 2013

I've been seeing higher than normal blueberry fruit fly captures in early fields this year.  Make sure you get out and check the traps to see if you have captures.  Refer to the (Insect and Disease Management Schedule) to see which products you can apply, if one is warranted.

I saw these flies on a trap today, July 12.

Also remember that the WBPANS field day is July 20th at the Wild Blueberry Research Centre, 168 Dakota Road, Debert.  (9:00am - 3:00pm)

Note: I can't make it this year, but there will be people at the weed ID booth that will be able to ID your weeds.
