IPM Message for Cranberry Growers: Jul 10, 2015

Jul 10, 2015

We have gotten a few calls about gypsy moth. There is no recommendation to treat for the moths that folks are reporting (both brown moths and white moths); IPM recommendations target larval stages. To the best of our knowledge, gypsy moth has only one generation per year, contrary to some information going around in the rumor mill. You may see dead caterpillars on tree trunks. These have been infected with a fungus and they will die.
