Week of August 18 – 22 Scouting Summary Report

FRUIT:

  • Apples: Fruit is developing.  Codling moth numbers in traps remained high once again this week.  Apple maggot trap numbers were 0 across all orchards.  Red mites and two-spotted spider mites were found at above treatment threshold numbers in a few orchards.  Some fly speck and sooty blotch showing up as well.
  • Grapes:  Spotted wing drosophila (SWD) were identified from traps in grapes at 2 out of 3 trapping locations this past week.   Both locations with positive identifications had high numbers probably as a result of not following a consistent and regular spray program.  Japanese beetles and stinkbugs were also found at low numbers in some vineyards.  Black rot is present in some vineyards.
