SWD factsheets

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

I have posted two updated factsheets on our website.


Monitoring for Spotted Wing Drosophila ( Monitoring for SWD )


and


Emergency Registrations for SWD ( SWD products )


You can review how to monitor for this pest and see which products are allowable by the PMRA for use. 


(Remember - ALWAYS CHECK WITH YOUR BUYER OR PROCESSOR TO SEE WHAT IS ALLOWABLE FOR THEIR MARKETS)


I will be posting swd captures in blueberry fields on this blog when we start to see them appear.


Other notes:


We are at the tail end of bloom in the central part of the province. Many early fields look to have a pretty good fruit set. 


As the bees move out it is time to think about monitoring for blueberry fruit fly as well. Blueberry fruit fly numbers were high last year, it is important to get your yellow sticky traps out as the first berries start to turn blue.
