IPM Message for Cranberry Growers: Sep 9, 2016

September 9, 2016

We have heard of a few reports of noticeable Spag flights over the past week or so.  It is not unusual to see Spag flight at this time of year.  We do NOT recommend applying insecticides at this point.  They will not affect the adults (moths).  The moths you see now will lay eggs and the first-instar larvae will overwinter.  If you see a flight of Spag out on your bog, you should be especially vigilant NEXT spring, looking for larvae.  If you have other questions or concerns, please call Marty at x20.
