Blueberry Fruit Fly Update

Thursday, July 14, 2016

We are starting to see captures above threshold in various areas around central NS.  It looks like fly pressure will be similar to the last couple of years, so it is important for growers to monitor and make applications appropriately.  If you are seeing large numbers of flies on your trap now, it would be prudent to apply a control within 3-4 days. Check with your buyer or processor for appropriate control products for their markets.
