Winter Pest Management

Insect pests spend their winters in different locations and in different stages of development. Some may overwinter as adults, others in their immature stage as grubs, caterpillars, or nymphs or in the pupal stage like a chrysalis or cocoon. Understanding their lifecycle and location can help us support beneficial insects while managing problem insect pests. We will explore ways to work with nature and how we can intercede now, when needed, to manage these pests.  

Sponsored by Summit Responsible Solutions makers of Year-Round Spray Oil (YRSO). When it is used as a dormant treatment, once it is dry, it won’t cause damage if the temperatures drop below 40 degrees F after treatment. It is a lighter weight, more highly refined oil, unlike true dormant oils that require the temperatures to remain above 40 degrees for 24 to 48 hours after application. As always read and follow label directions of any product you decide to use.
