Monitor hibiscus bud weevil with Trécé’s new PHEROCON® HBW STKYTM CANOPYTM

Monitor hibiscus bud weevil, Anthonomus testaceosquamosus, in hibiscus with Trécé’s new PHEROCON HBW STKY CANOPY.

The hibiscus bud weevil is the most important insect attacking hibiscus plants in southern Florida. The insect, which is kin to the boll weevil and pepper weevil, immigrated to Florida from Mexico and South Texas within the last decade.

Hibiscus bud weevil is a regulated insect due to its significant presence and plant damage (especially in Dade County, FL) and its potential level of damage to the hibiscus industry when not carefully controlled.

Integrated pest management programs have been in the process of development using yellow adhesive coated liners plus insecticides as a workable IPM combination. There are no predators or parasites directly attacking hibiscus bud weevil and there are no other control measures that are very effective after an infestation is sustained.

Dr. Kevin Cloonan of USDA REE ARS is in the process of identifying the natural pheromone, which will lead to a significant improvement in the efficacy of the yellow card liners already used for monitoring.

Significant biology and other basic information have been developed by University of Florida researchers Dr. Alexandra Revynthi and colleagues and Dr. Paul Kendra at USDA ARS Subtropical Horticulture Research Station, who have developed and published a significant body of knowledge about the hibiscus bud weevil.

The new CANOPY traps provide early capture & extended monitoring for hibiscus bud weevil by using a burst of yellow color with the proper reflectivity for hibiscus bud weevil. Trécé’s early detection trapping system is critical to establishing the need for spraying as well as the timing for the most cost-efficient results.

Indian Meal Moth Mating Disruption in Stored Product & PCO Environments

Indian meal moth mating disruption using CIDETRAK® IMM MESO™ & IMM MEC™ in stored product & PCO environments

BACKGROUND

Trécé’s pheromone and kairomone-based CIDETRAK products have been insect control standards in orchards and vineyards for over 30 years. Yet, CIDETRAK IMM MESO and CIDETRAK IMM MEC are among the first pheromone-based products for Indian meal moth mating disruption in stored products, food processing, retail and other PCO environments. CIDETRAK IMM MESO is a solid dispenser and CIDETRAK IMM MEC is a microencapsulated sprayable liquid. 

Stored product environments are highly complex and present many variables to consider for Indian meal moth management.  Constant immigration from commodity introductions, human interaction, closed or partially closed facilities, and food/product safety are factors that challenge IPM decisions.  

Accordingly, the following questions are the most common questions Trécé receives from customers initiating an IPM program using CIDETRAK IMM MESO, CIDETRAK IMM MEC, and STORGARD® II IMM+4 Traps.

WHY AREN’T INDIAN MEAL MOTHS IN THE STORGARD II IMM+4 TRAP?

After installation of CIDETRAK IMM MESO or application of IMM MEC, the Indian meal moth pheromone will diffuse throughout a stored product facility until it has reached a significant level of air permeation. Indian meal moth adults stop active mate searching and land. These behaviors result in drastic decline in STORGARD II Indian meal moth trap captures. However, the high air permeation of the Indian meal moth pheromone reduces &/or delays mating, creating an over-expenditure of energy, and significantly reduced reproduction.

WHY AM I STILL SEEING INDIAN MEAL MOTH TRAP CAPTURE IN CIDETRAK TREATED AREAS?

  1. There is Indian meal moth infested product close to the STORGARD II IMM+4 trap.

The PCO should investigate what is directly around the trap and remove all infested product/commodity.

  1. Newly introduced infested products.

Every industry seems to have a season when Indian meal moth abundance is very high. Manufacturing, warehousing, and transportation experience higher abundance in August and September. Infestations during these months are often from raw commodities coming into storage in combination with shorter degree days/life cycles.  Retail environments experience higher STORGARD II Indian meal moth trap captures in October – January when more cleaning and restocking occurs. These brief “up-ticks” in trap counts will quickly be suppressed within a week.

  1. It may be time to re-treat with CIDETRAK IMM MESO or IMM MEC.

Sustained Low STORGARD II IMM+4 trap capture numbers across an entirely treated facility may indicate that CIDETRAK IMM MESO dispensers are almost depleted. Consider retreatment and let your STORGARD II IMM+4 trap counts be the indicator.

  1. Occasional trap captures in the STORGARD IMM+4 trap with Indian meal moth mating disruption.

STORGARD II IMM+4 traps use high release of Indian meal moth pheromone to attract the target species. However, despite significant mating disruption, a few adult Indian meal moth males may still find the traps.

HOW LONG SHOULD I MAINTAIN CIDETRAK USE FOR INDIAN MEAL MOTH CONTROL?

CIDETRAK IMM MESO or CIDETRAK IMM MEC mating disruption products, unlike insecticides, should be used as long as control is desired, especially the first 2-3 years.

SUSTAINED USE OF CIDETRAK IMM MESO

NEW mating disruption product registration for Oriental fruit moth (OFM) in California

NEW mating disruption product registration for Oriental fruit moth (OFM) in California

BACKGROUND

Oriental fruit moth (Grapholita molesta), or OFM, is a key pest in peaches, apples, plums, and other stone and pome fruits. A thorough monitoring and treatment plan built around mating disruption and insecticides only when necessary is crucial to protect one’s crop. When these tools are used properly, one sets one’s orchard up for success and clean fruit at harvest.

MATING DISRUPTION

The use of mating disruption prevents OFM males from locating females in the orchard and results in fewer fertile eggs laid on healthy fruit. CIDETRAK® OFM-L MESOTM is now registered for use in California in crops where OFM is a pest. At the recommended 32 dispensers/acre (80/hectare), one’s mating disruption will require less labor at application while still getting the benefit of multiple point sources. CIDETRAK OFM-L MESO is a season-long mating disruption treatment that, in accordance with a strict monitoring program, can allow significant reduction in the need for insecticide application. Over time, preventing Oriental Fruit Moth from reproducing in one’s orchard leads to lower populations & less fruit damage during the season.

MONITORING

When using CIDETRAK OFM-L MESO mating disruption for Oriental fruit moth, be sure to continue with a reliable monitoring program. When one’s mating disruption is working properly, one’s pheromone alone traps will be shut down. Continuous use of the PHEROCON® OFM COMBOTM DUALTM lure provides capture of both male and female OFM to ensure one can track flight timings throughout the season under mating disruption. Tracking one’s flight generations and counting degree days is crucial for timing insecticide applications to maximize one’s IPM program.

Oriental Fruit Moth can be a big problem in one’s orchard. So, set one’s orchard up for success by using CIDETRAK OFM-L MESO to decrease pest pressure and PHEROCON OFM COMBO DUAL to track pest activity throughout the season. Utilizing these tools in one’s IPM program can help ensure a quality harvest at the end of the season.

The future of San Jose scale (SJS) management

The Future of San Jose Scale (SJS) Management

BACKGROUND

San Jose scale, Quadraspidiotus perniciosus (Comstock), or SJS, is a widespread pest of tree fruit as well as tree nut, berry, and other ornamental and woody hosts across the United States.  San Jose scale females are immobile, but release a sex pheromone to attract males for mating.  Female scales can produce several hundred live offspring, known as crawlers, that disperse and feed on limbs and fruit.  Feeding by large populations of scales can cause loss of tree vigor, injury to the surface and underlying tissues of fruit, and potentially limb or tree death under severe situations. 

MONITORING

Adult male San Jose scale can be monitored using the PHEROCON®  SJS lure and the PHEROCON V SJS trap.  Additionally, San Jose scale crawler abundance can be assessed by wrapping a piece of black electrical tape tightly around a tree limb (typically in areas of known infestations) and then wrapping a piece of double-sided sticky tape over top of the electrical tape. 

MATING DISRUPTION

Recently, research has been initiated by Trécé to develop a novel product for disruption of San Jose scale mating.  The technology behind this experimental product is the same as with the various moth pests like codling moth, oriental fruit moth, or navel orangeworm – saturating an area with high doses of synthetic sex pheromones so that males are unable to find females for mating.  Trials conducted by university researchers in Georgia and Michigan using Trécé’s experimental SJS mating disruption have shown very promising results by greatly reducing captures of adult males and crawlers in orchard crops.  Trécé will continue to enhance this product and commercialize it in the near future.

Mating disruption as a crucial component of your Navel Orangeworm (NOW) IPM program

Mating disruption as a crucial component of your Navel Orangeworm (NOW) IPM program

Utilizing a thorough Navel Orangeworm (Amyelois transitella), or NOW, control program is crucial to protect your crop and preserve yields. Five main components should be used to create a strong defense: Winter sanitation, Monitoring, Mating Disruption, Insecticides, Timely harvest. By focusing on the above five principles, your orchard will have the best support possible in the fight against NOW.

As one of the core principles of NOW control, mating disruption covers the orchard with NOW’s naturally produced pheromones which makes it more difficult for males to sense the real female pheromone. This results in fewer males mating with NOW females and leads to a reduction in fertile eggs laid on new crop nuts. UC and industry research has shown this process leads to a 50% or more reduction in nut damage due to NOW. Typically, mating disruption is used in conjunction with the other 4 components of a quality IPM program for NOW to ensure you keep your pest damage in check.

The damage reduction due to mating disruption has a big impact on the grower’s bottom line. Not only are growers preserving their yields by reducing damaged nuts in the field, but they’re also able to hit higher quality bonuses at the processor by lowering their damage. These two factors can equate to big savings at the end of the season. A study by UC’s David Haviland shows that mating disruption typically pays for itself at around 1% predicted damage in almonds (Haviland 2021). Additionally, orchards with high yields and higher damage can improve their margins, as NOW mating disruption still provides damage reduction at higher pest pressures. Given these conditions where mating disruptions provides a positive ROI, most orchards would benefit from the use of mating disruption.

When choosing your mating disruption, Trécé’s CIDETRAK® NOW MESOTM offers benefits that are unmatched in the market. MESO dispensers utilize 15-28 dispensers/acre, based on the extent of your pest pressure, to ensure thorough pheromone coverage in your orchard – even in oddly shaped blocks. Additionally, as the only available passive dispenser, CIDETRAK NOW MESO releases pheromone 24/7 for the length of the season. There are no mechanics or adjuvants involved, which allows the product to be used in organic orchards. Once CIDETRAK NOW MESO is applied in your orchard, you can be confident NOW mating is being prevented and your crop is protected all season long.

Optimizing your 2023 monitoring program for Navel Orangeworm (NOW)

Optimizing your 2023 monitoring program for Navel Orangeworm (NOW)

Navel Orangeworm (Amyelois transitella), or NOW, is a key pest in almond and pistachio orchards throughout California. A robust monitoring program for NOW is crucial to keep you prepared to make the right treatment decisions throughout the season. Every orchard block is unique, so using your monitoring tools properly to gather site-specific information on pest activity gives you the freedom to customize your control program.

A quality monitoring program utilizes complementary trap types to gather information throughout the season. For example, egg traps provide insight on female activity in your orchard, pheromone traps track male activity, and PPO + pheromone traps provide a multi-gender attraction that is particularly helpful in orchards under mating disruption. When we take the information gained from these traps together and combine them with end of season harvest data, we can complete a better picture of the season.

It is important to remember when and where to use these monitoring tools. Egg traps are great for establishing a biofix at the beginning of the season, which can then be used as the starting point for degree-day tracking. However, they are not as reliable as you move through the season. Egg trap counts become more variable as mummy or new crop nuts compete for attraction.

Monitoring “in season” is best accomplished by pheromone traps that use the specific female pheromone to attract male NOW. Pheromone traps provide a real-time estimate of new flights and their peaks. Although, they will not provide reliable flight information in an orchard using mating disruption. Mating disruption, such as CIDETRAK® NOW MESOTM, disrupts the pheromone communication between male & female NOW, so pheromone traps are highly suppressed.

When using mating disruption, employing the PPO lure, in addition to a pheromone lure, provides a multi-gender attraction that will achieve measurable trap captures throughout the season. When used under the right circumstances, Trécé’s monitoring tools provide meaningful information to strengthen your IPM program.  

Regardless of the monitoring program you decide to use, there is one key factor that is the most important: CONSISTENCY!! The behavior of NOW makes it nearly impossible to create true trap thresholds for damage prediction, so comparing your historical averages to in-season data will give you the necessary context to make decisions. It is important to remember that maintaining consistency, by using the same lures, trap styles, trap positionings, etc., in your program is the best way to reasonably compare trap data year after year.

BROWN MARMORATED STINK BUG (BMSB) TRAP AND PHEROMONE LURE

BROWN MARMORATED STINK BUG (BMSB) TRAP AND PHEROMONE LURE

THE INSECT AND THE PROBLEM:

Brown marmorated stink bug (Halyomorpha halys), or BMSB, is an invasive polyphagous insect that can feed on over 170 host plant species. Some of the most affected specialty crops include apple, pear, peach, grape, nectarine, cherry, soybean, field and sweet corn, tomato, and hazelnut, among others.

THE TRAP AND LURE:

The PHEROCON® BMSB STKY™ trap is a double-sided, dual panel adhesive trap that is attached to the top of a 3’ wooden stake with PHEROCON BMSB DUAL™ lure positioned above the trap. The wooden stake acts as a tree trunk mimic, facilitating the BMSB natural climbing behavior. BMSB ascend the wooden stake towards the lure and are trapped on the STKY adhesive trap before reaching the lure.

TRAP CAPTURE INTERPRETATION AND ACTION:

While there are no established thresholds for BMSB, using monitoring traps can aid in assessing the need for action. Capture of BMSB does not always warrant an insecticide application, but if nymphs are captured treatment is almost always recommended. Both adults and nymphs can damage crops, therefore, accurate timing of sprays is essential to reduce damage.

OTHER IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS:

BMSB does not reside permanently in any single crop but is a landscape level pest that can move in and out of crop habitats and wooded areas as host phenology changes throughout the season. In addition, BMSB is considered a nuisance pest for homeowners. In the fall, the overwintering generation invades human-made structures and aggregates inside structures until the following spring.
